That was pretty much how I was going to handle this.  All our scripts 
have the do is detect the number of elements in pkgname and do the

 From experience, this is a permissions issue.  Dan fixed it last time 
and Jan the time before that.  I can't access the log files on the 
server anymore to confirm that is the error so can someone look for me?
