SubjectLock of sorts on 2.1.128
Hi all,

I upgraded to 2.1.128 last night. Everything went smoothly and it appeared
to run fine. Over night at some point, things went bad. I was running X
with Window Maker and xscreensaver (not much else.) I noticed this morning
that xscreensaver was not displaying anything (black screen.) Pressing
shift brought me back to X. I could move the windows around, and could type
in an xterm, but all commands would just sit without processing or exiting.
On wmload I noticed that the CPU was pinned on 100%. I could
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace out of X. I tried a ps axf on the console, but nothing.
I tried to log in on another console as root to take a look at things. It
would log me in but didn't seem to be able to run bash. I'm guessing no new
processes could run, but running ones could process.

I didn't have MagicSysReq enabled (it is now,) so I have no info there.
After rebooting and looking at the logs, there wasn't anything there either.

RedHat 5.2
AMD K6-2
EPOX 100MHz board (MVP3)
128M RAM

Patches and test proggies and debugging suggestions will be appreciated.
I'm eager for a rock solid 2.2. This is the first real problem I have seen
since getting this new system together. Very nice work everyone.

P.S. I have not looked at the list yet this morning, so this may just end up
being a 'me too.' :-)
