Forget this message, its not significant, I'll do something about suppressing it
at some time.

It's a serious program error, the program is trying to address memory that it is
not allowed to have access to.

This is _very_ surprising that it works at all given the above error.

OK, what's happening is that the client manages to open one of the magic passwd
files to get read/write access (see README about setting up the aceserver), but
cannot read the contents of the file which is very strange.

Please can you send me copies of your wspec/passwd.wrm, wspec/server.wrm and
we'll take it from there.
