SubjectRe: 2.4.0-test9-pre6 shmem problems revisited
I think there's problem in both the kernel and in X. Why?

Work machine:
* test9-pre2 w/ X 4.0d ... uptime 5 days nothing reporting
shm errors like my other boxes. This machine gets hit pretty
hard when I'm on it.

Co-worker's machine:
* 2.2.16 w/ X 4.0.1c ... getting reports of shm errors but no
lockups. This guy tortures his machine.

Home machine:
* test7 w/ X 4.0.1c ... getting reports of shm errors but no
lockups

* test9-pre* w/ X 4.0.1c ... can't stay up for more than a
couple hours before locking up.

To do:
* Try test 8
* Try X from about a week or two ago (or futher back if needed)


Not very scientific I know. But so far the thing I see in common is that
using kernels before test9-pre* with or without X 4.0.1c and your
machine wont lock up in a relatively short period of time. use
test9-pre* w/ X 4.0.1c and you're not gonna be up for more than a couple
hours. i may be lumping all the test9-pre versions in here when I
shouldnt be.


Like someone stated earlier, I think this is like the truncate bug.
Something has been changed that just brought this bug out to the front.
