Gorby is also chomping an array instead of just using a scalar all the way through. There's 3 opens and closes for the counterfile: first open in append, second open in RW, and third open in write. this spells disaster when not locking the lock/semaphore file properly using sysopen and flock. Therefore, when the server is busy, and the semaphore lock fails, the counter file is clobberred by another instance of the prog. It could have been written with just a single lock on the counter file itself: but locked properly (sysopen/flock) and openned and closed once, not 3 times.
