You're right, I had variable.dbm in both dbconf/default_db and
dbconf/mysql.  I noticed I also have identical access.dbm and
mv_metadata.dbm files in those locations.  Does variable have special
handling in this case?

OK but should that usertag be disincluded from IC since it has a problem?

Do I need to stick with 666 permissions since I'm using
Interchange::Link instead of vlink?
