DXL Blues »

Had quite some frustrations this week with DXL...
I was exporting the DXL of all the databases on the server at work using a script agent. I kicked the agent client-side and kept getting red boxes of death, time after time. Bill advised me to switch client from 6.5 to 6.0.x, but this did not fix it either. It turned out that the DXL export got stuck on every Lotus Workflow main database on the server. I'm not sure, but I suspect this is because of the way the Lotus Workflow engine is compiled: using external LSS files.
Bill's point is very valid though, apparently random memory leaks occur when using DXL on a 6.5.x client. On top of all this I ran into some other buggy behavior of DXL processing before, such as incompletely exported DXL. Not all were self-caused, I can tell you.
DXL...a great feature, but not fully implemented?
