Not in the least; this particular instance is SmartOS, so at least I have good debugging tools (read: Dtrace) to dig deep after the holiday. Once I figure out what’s up, I’ll definitely post the solution back to the list for posterity. I asked here on the off chance that this were something like “Oh, look, the code does <X> strangeness in debug mode.”

Appreciate your help, Alan.
