    SubjectRe: GPF in 2.0.26 _load__block_bitmap

    i just happened again :-( at exactly the same EIP.
    and again it was "sendmail" which was running when this happened; can't
    be a random event, can it ?

    actually "sendmail" is a pretty old version of "smail":
    # smail -V
    /\==/\ Smail3.1.28.1 #28.20
    ll /usr/bin/smail
    -r-sr-xr-x 1 root bin 222212 Oct 21 1993 /usr/bin/smail

    and it tried to write an outgoing mail to my UUCP spool area both times...

    I've compiled this kernel image on November 25 and it run flawlessly
    24 hours a day since then and it sent ~300 mails with no problem at all.
    and now two kernel problems within one hour ???

    this is ne 2nd crash; I'll compile 2.0.27 now...
