 Christey> BUGTRAQ:20000102 "HPUX Aserver revisited." indicates that two
   different versions of aserver have symlink problems, but with
   different files.  So CD:SF-LOC says we should split this.
 Frech> XF:hp-aserver
 Christey> BID:1928 and BID:1930?  Which one is being described in
   this candidate?
