Nathan,

binning cats is cruel so cfengine doesn't allow you to gloat with "yada
yada" afterwards.

Umm.. ok :)

Actually this has to do with the fact that no shell is used to wrap the
command. It could be useful to have a functino which does wrap too. For
now you can do /bin/sh to hush up the cruelty.

The exact line that is causing the hang is:
  CurrentLoad = ( ExecResult(/bin/sh -c "/bin/cat /proc/loadavg | /bin/awk '{print 
$1}' | tr -d '\n'") )

Is that not correct?  It does work in 2.1.14, which is why I'm perplexed.

Thanks!
