Obituaries aren't processing on fast 64 bit servers

Environment

Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Linux
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for AIX
Novell eDirectory 8.8 for Windows 2003

Situation

Upgraded eDirectory to 64 bit version.
Obituaries aren't processing.
After deleting entries, they remain in change cache.

The "Used By Obituary" is flagged to 2 (Ok to Purge)
The Primary Obituary is flagged 4 (Purgeable)

Resolution

To prevent additional obituaries from not processing, apply eDirectory 8.8.5 Patch 4 to the 64 bit servers.

The current obituaries will not process even when eDirectory 8.8.5 Patch 4 is applied.  They can usually be removed by time stamping them again with the -OT switch.
