Intermitten errors in outbound IDocs

We're on SAP 4.6D with Gentran on Unix using EDI. Intermitten Outbound IDocs from SAP to Gentran creates status 18 and are not passed to the EDI subsystem. Programs RFCexec and startRFC are the same version on both the SAP server and the EDI subsystem server.

How can I eliminate these intermitten errors and resends of data?
Looks like Gentran has a problem returning a status after processing. Status 18 tells me that the Gentran processor has been reached and activated correctly, but apparently there is an error later on in the process. Check with Sterling Commerce for this issue, as this is unlikely to be an SAP issue.
