You're right. Been in a hurry this morning. But: That way he's got a
single buffer for each files. As he's using some *nix flavour I'd
expect the system to shut down gracefully. So just throw out all the
ckeckpoints. Don't need 'em. All you need is some disk space *g* This
will reduce the glut as much as possible cause the client'll write to
the buffers only when it's (a) completing a node or (b) shuts down.
