Hmm, I was not aware ProPack 1.4 was actually released yet, you probably have
a beta version. We have at least one case of someone using a copy of ProPack
which predated the XFS beta. Could you please use the images from the XFS
website at http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs and see if this helps. Or if this
is what you are actually using please let us know.
