Just to clarify this: we offered to work with Jerry and requested more
information on the problem which was not forthcoming. So its not a question
of him "waiting for us to fix it", last we left it we were waiting for him
to come back to us. Like all reputable hosting providers, on-Rev imposes
certain limits to prevent runaway processes from eating up the entire CPU
and degrading performance for all users on a server. Those process limits
apply to all applications on the server, not just Rev. We suspect it might
be something related to this but we haven't been able to see the problem
ourselves, no one else has reported it and the information we requested in
order to try to track this down was never supplied. Nor do we even know if
the problem happens if Jerry runs revServer locally or on a different
hosting provider.

Kind regards,
