    ****************************************************************
    The native_stderr.log file was being opened as exclusive
    write. Unfortunately, when a server is asked to restart
    itself, there is a period when the new instance must be able
    to open and write to this file before the old instance has
    closed it.
    (The exclusive-access file mode is only an advisory on most
    operating systems. Microsoft Windows systems enforce
    it strictly, which exposed this erroneous setting.)
