Yep... I'm going to try to do some intensive testing and trying older
2.1.X kernels to see if I can help track down the source of the problem,
but I probably won't get a chance for a day or two.

I did check earlier though on a couple of things mentioned. One, they are
not trying to use the same resources (at least not as far as I could tell
from /proc). Also, it doesn't happen every time.

It's really weird, I almost feel like I'm in Windows when this happens <G>
But then I remember that I can actually help to fix the problem and I
don't mind the fsck as much any more.
