Thanks for the help, Mark.

I will try upgrading and then ask again if I need further help.  I hope 
the errors mogtool is having are due to the old OS and old Perl as well.

I am still curious to know if the mogtool --bigfile functions are in 
common use and what people have observed in terms of mogtool's failure 
modes (both copies of a block not matching checksum, for example).
