Math license manager problem

  • To: mathgroup at
  • Subject: [mg7022] Math license manager problem

A problem I've had with Mathematica 3.0 under NS/Intel running with a  
network license is this: when the notebook or kernel dies (which it does a  
bit too often for my tastes), the license manager (mathlm) on the host  
machine doesn't register the fact that there is no longer a Mathematica  
process running on the network under this license.  This means I cannot run  
Mathematica or start a new kernel until I quit everything, log into the  
license server machine, su to root, kill the mathlm process and restart it.

Needless to say that's a bit painful, and for someone who doesn't have root  
priveleges could be a major obstacle.

Are there any solutions to this problem?  I sent mail to Wolfram tech  
support but haven't heard back yet.
