    I'm seeing a lot of the following:

    Aug 24 12:00:07 charged kernel: RPC terminated by signal
    Aug 24 12:00:07 charged kernel: RPC process was xemacs (pid 927)
    Aug 24 12:00:07 charged kernel: RPC signal block is 0 pending = 10000000

    (which sometimes coincides with the abort of my backup)

    and

    Aug 24 11:56:45 charged kernel: RPC terminated by signal
    Aug 24 11:56:45 charged kernel: RPC process was netscape-commun (pid 945)
    Aug 24 11:56:45 charged kernel: RPC signal block is 0 pending = 2000

    (no obvious effects on the running netscape)

    Cheers,
    Trond
