Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-01-18 09:57:59 UTC
Since it hangs the machine it's probably a kernel issue...
And we don't have a sparc over at, so I can't do anything to reproduce
this/trace it down.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-18 20:38:59 UTC
It's a kernel bug, should be fixed in 2.2.15preX.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-05 21:37:59 UTC
... which will be in the next Raw Hide release.
