I'm on my OS/2 box at the moment, the parameter is "-z 65536".

Me wrong - those are the two. hierarch.pm is one you don't necessarily 
need to fix - just rename it, start Pegasus again, and it recreates it. 
I think the same is true of cache.pm.

Of course, then you have to recreate your folder hierarchy ... I know a 
number of Pegasus users who keep regular backups of these files.

Hope it helps!
