    CS3 Mac Network Render inconsistent

      I've set up a render farm as follows:

      2 Mac x-servs (8-core 2.8 Ghz)
      2 Mac Pro (8-core 3.0Ghz)
      All fiber to an Avid Unity for sharing the projects
      using the "watch folder" method.

      All of the machines are setup the same way... but 2 problems...

      1) Render crashes on machines at random.

      2) One of the machines (and I can't tell which one) is rendering with more contrast than the others! They all have the same exact effects library, running with all the updates the same on all machines! I'm pulling my freakin' hair out!

      Help?!

          But one of them has a system wide color profile assigned which in turn affects everything handled by Quicktime. The crashes are not unheard of and depend on one machine never seeming to finish a given chunk. I clearly remember this being discussed a number of times, but I'm not sure of the actual resolution.
