thanks for the reply. I am trying it.
I have no idea if I can manage it to install the new software on my systems in an acceptable period of time. Could you please make available the latest working vps file for the old version of the software resp. let me know where I could get it?
on my side it works OK:
zilog@sinclair:/mnt/storage/t/feb2010build$ ./stestik /etc/passwd
Status: 0 (Success)
VPS info: Structure 2147483659 Version 268642561 UncompressSize 55881907 Compiled 29.03.2010
I'm 0 running, variable at 0xbf863380, handle 0x85457f8.

Waiting on getchar(); all handles closed, reloading
on Mac, works OK, but indeed, avastcmd started to fail. With older 400.vps it works OK, with new one not. BUT, customised engine which doesn't use SHM memory sharing, works still OK (used on Mac machines) - so here would be the cause. Checking the cause right now...
