You mentioned that you had an unscheduled shutdown recently. Did the 
problem start shortly thereafter? Do you have an archived version of the 
file that you can compare this one too? It's not impossible that the 
encrypted file was corrupted.


I am conducting an experiment in the efficacy of PGP/MIME signatures. 
This message should be signed. If it is not, or the signature does not 
validate, please let me know how you received this message (direct, or 
to a list) and the mail software you use. Thanks!
