Checkpoint Problems Continue

After continued troubleshooting, we are still having problems with our
checkpointing NOT executing the #0:checkpoint_started and
#0:checkpoint_finished verbs.  The verbs are +x, and they have worked in
the past.  The verbs are very simple and do not contain errors.  The system
IS checkpointing at the regular intervals, which is 30 minutes.  We have
recently upgraded to the latest server, 1.8.0p6 and the problem continues.

Any ideas?
