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
