    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.
