SubjectKernel 2.2.1 and sysvinit 2.76 possible bug
I pass along this exchange for the readers of this list since it appears
to be relevant:

According to Dan Srebnick:

This is the response from

This sounds like a kernel problem. A user level program should not
be able to crash the machine. Even if sysvinit _was_ the culprit
(which I doubt) then a reboot is still a kernel bug.

Try backing off to 2.0.36

Indifference will certainly be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
