I remember reading the full article in comp.risks - there was a
database entry error by an operator that put a zero into a field
that was later used as the divisor... and the code could not deal
with a divide by zero error.... crash.  If you look in the
comp.risks archives I'm sure you can find the entire article...
it was quite detailed.
