That's actually perfect!  Sometime could you make a copy of your spool/broctl.dat before you restart?

I'd like two copies of that file.  One before a restart and one after the restart (assuming the restart fails).  It could point out if there is corruption entering the broctl.dat file at some point.  This problem drives me crazy and I'd love to fix it.
