    Eric, Amy,

    I saved the offending message file in /home/pilabo/AIPS/DA01

-rw-r--r--   1 fowen    aips  14944256 Jul 15 13:20 MSD0GY000.save

and deleted the message file for 0GY.  That seemed to solve the problem.

Another clue is that after I submitted the first batch job today and tried
to SUBMIT another in another BATQUE, I got a message "TASK
ACTIVE" and could not submit another unless I opened another
AIPS window for each new job. After I deleted the message file,
I could submit all three BATCH jobs form there different queues within
the same AIPS window.
