[RC5] How to Interpret Keyspace Plots, please?

     Does this graph program guarantee that it has enough core and stack 
     to run?
     
     Does this graph program acquire locks on an active portion of a 
     database?  Are they read-only locks?  How many failed lock attempts 
     is it willing to accept before aborting?
     
     Does this program acquire locks on parts of itself (either 
     explicitly or implicitly)?  Does it share non-multiprogramming-safe 
     DLLs (or whatnot) among multiple instances?
     
     Is it possible to generate (inert) aggregate tables for the graphing 
     program?
     
     How quickly are PIDs recycling on the machine hosting the graph 
     program?  Could it be receiving signals intended for the previous 
     holder of its PID?
     
     Could graphs be statically generated about as often as a pixel 
     changes?  (Since I'm sure the number of changed pixels from hour to 
     hour is very low.)

     [snip]
The program that generates /graphs/ has to run some fairly intensive 
programs on the keymaster for an extended period of time.  Sometimes, for 
a currently unknown reason, these programs abort.  When this happens, the 
script produces some nicely broken HTML. :) 
     
The problem is currently being worked on.  It should be getting better.
