Hi Yinghai,

Thanks for the feedback! Would you send me your config file and
other details (like cpu type/mem size/etc.) and I'll attempt
to reproduce the failure.

(My problem is that only the AMD box is a real "workstation", the
Intel box is a dual quad-cpu server so it's really deficient in I/O.)

Thanks,
Mike
