Sunday, early evening Utility after full days input, ok (no detectable problems).
Then added 6 Actor records with some relted relational data.
Utility: 6 bad index report, Utiity hung at end of 3d pass.

Segmented those 6 Actors, and relational links (eg phone, date, picture) into bite-sized
entry, then Utility, narrowed down the indigestion cause.
End result, with same data, just in smaller bites, passed utility.

Supports hypothesis that sometimes too much data causes problems with Utility, or
perhaps when Utility has to fix too many things, or interactive things, it hangs between
Checking record listings and finishing Checking the free space.

Gil could probably give you some advice about this.

To be perfectly Candide: this is not a Panglossian world.
