Thank you, since last time we spoke monit has matured and become a
collective effort with many clever folks contributing "beautiful code" :)

Thank you also very much for the interessting Mac OS X discussion. (If
I ever get hold on some extra money the next laptop I'll buy will be a
Apple with OS X). One thing worries me though:

Ooops! and this may not be a specific OS X problem but in fact the
same problem which generate SIGSEGV reported lately on this mailing
list by Igor. I would really appreciate if you where able to find out
more about this particular error/warning.

I think you forgot to attach the diff to your mail :-) We
would very much like to include this diff in CVS to get monit running
on Mac OS X.
