Thanks and so far it looks like it is fixed, I will continue to
monitor it though.  I did notice pwclient throwing some errors, such

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/jtkirshe/bin/pwclient", line 827, in <module>

    raise err
socket.error: [Errno 111] Connection refused

So I downloaded a new copy of pwclient (in case it needed to be
updated) and the above error has only happened once.  Thought I would
make you aware of it, just in case it was not expected.
