    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?
