Yup, it was eating CPU time pretty fast in my case too. I noticed that
after I sent my original message.

Interesting note; I just checked the server and the process has _finally_
gone away. It also went away overnight the last time it happened to me on
an FTP process. (Note that the two FTP incidents for me were on different
machines: one was a Dec Alpha UDB 166 MHz, the other was a Pentium 133
MHz. Both were running 2.0.20 however)

Interesting. Two times it has happened to me on ftp's, and once on a pppd
process. Since my Alpha was previously running 2.0.13 without problems,
we can narrow this down to somewhere between 2.0.14 and 2.0.18
