Problem not only found on IRIX but also on Solaris 2.5.  I'm running 2.99.38 
also and limit NROUTERS to 1 for temporary fix.

I've tried to uncomment HAVE_RENAME and use old link/unlink for locking in 
2.99.38 but seems the problem still presists.   Besides this, any fix in
2.99.46p1 to address the problem?

I'll try Andy's locking code and just to see whether it helps in Solaris.
