I'm relieved to hear it's not just me who had problems getting RunCache to
work from an init.d file under DEC Unix. The problem seemed to be the need
to put an ampersand (&) on the end of the RunCache command - whatever
shell is used to interpret the init.d scripts didn't like that. I did
comtemplate modifying RunCache so it put itself into the background, but
instead took the easy way out and ran it from inittab.

We've had no problems, except when we want to shut the cache down, and
Unix is determined to restart it :-)
