Ok, everything is great and wonderful and happy and I can now merrily go along administering and maintaining my beautiful Zimbra server, thanks in substantion portion to everyone here.
There's just one thing that still won't go away: The stats module does not start on a reboot, and does not stay running for more than several hours when manually started.
I've searched the forums and bugzilla, but there's nothing quite like this particular problem, though I have tried suggestions from similar threads to no avail. The log only tells me that it is stopped, no reason why it happened is included.
Anyone have an idea how I can make stats work consistently?
