PRODUCT:        MessageQ for UNIX[R] 3.x, 4.x

                Digital UNIX
                HP-UX[TM]

                Solaris[R]
                SunOS

ISSUE:

After a period of time, the pams_attach_q() call returns PAMS__RESRCFAIL (246) error code on Digital UNIX v4.x operating system.  This problem can occur on other UNIX operating systems as well that have crontab
entries deleting key MessageQ files in the /tmp/dmq and /var/tmp/dmq directories.

Note:  MessageQ for UNIX 3.2 and later keep their key files under /var/tmp/dmq; prior to MessageQ for UNIX 3.2, these files were kept under /tmp/dmq.
