you zapped the wrong lines.  you want to keep the 'unloved' stuff and
nuke the 'pCLwr' stuff.

huh?  as i said, conserver doesn't do anything different between the two
methods...they both output the same data.

now, interpreting things a bit differently, based on hints above, it
could be that file buffering is biting you.  stuff going to the file
based on -U will, by default, be buffered to a block at a time...instead
of line based or character based.  is *that* what's happening?  (all
file output is that way, actually).

what confuses me is you're saying things behave differently when you're
logged in.  i'm not seeing that behavior.  if you could specify how to
reproduce the problem, that would be good.  

your other message said the 'logfile' option helped.  that just sends
stuff that would have been stdout/stderr to a file.  unless you hacked
the -u code, you still wouldn't get output when users are attached.

basically, i'm thoroughly confused.  i'm glad it's working for you, but
i'm hoping that if there are issues, i can get more details and fix
