Subject': WHENCLOSE function not being called'
To': LispSupport'
cc': Kaplan, Masinter'
There is a whenclose function on the file WHEREIS.HASH that flushes the corresponding hashfile datatype.  This appears to be not getting called when restarting the sysout if the file can''t be reopened (as just happened with phylum being down.)'
