2.3.10 seems to work fine under the same conditions, no locked processes etc.
2.2.10 still accumulates "stopped" running processes, however...

Also, 2.3.10 is the first 2.3.x kernel that worked without oopsing and
trashing my filesystem for some time: great work, thanks to all who made it

Some disturbing thing I noticed in both 2.2.10 and 2.3.10, however, is
that the load average is at constant _3_, when only two processes are
(seem to be) running. To my knowledge, the only thing these processes
do is number crunching and reading/writing files occasionally, so there
should be no hidden processes.

If I stop the two processes, the load average drops to around zero, as
expected. I'm not sure these problems are related, however the load
average behaves "excpectedly" during compilation for example.
