tdsread problems on Solaris
has developed a strange new illness, whereby it cannot read EPICS values from
two subsystems at once
(e.g., getting an LSC and SUS value simultaneously). I thought this might have something to with the fact that both
are running on the same box,
but the same thing happens with IOO EPICS records, so that's not the culprit.
This is new behaviour, and it's only happening on the solaris machines. I suspect some ENV/cshrc juju has caused it, as the
executable is the same one from April, and I don't think our EPICS infrastructure has changed otherwise. In the near term we can either try running the scripts on linux, or modify the IFO scripts to not do these types of calls.
