As others also, I have a love/hate relashionship with Lotus Notes & Domino. I exchange a lot of data between Domino and the "outside world" (i.e. Linux and Unix systems) via XML, often either produced by Lotusscript agents which I access over HTTP, or else produced by custom made C-API programs which serve hand-crafted XML when invoked as CGI programs on a Domino HTTP task. What baffles me, is how both the agents and the C programs are suddenly and silently "dropped" or killed by the HTTP task. I know, because the resulting XML is invalid on the client side and cannot be parsed. It is as though the server suddenly chopped off the connection.
