I don't think the eepro100 has antyhing to do with this problem. I
observed it as well the other day, and wasn't doing much network. I was
thinking it might have something to do with IDE stuff (oh, this was on
2.2.17+RAID).

The following is what I saw:

I was testing a harddrive by filling it up. I was doing the following in 3
VCs:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/foo (or bar, or baz, depending on window).

After the first timeout above, I renamed foo/bar/baz to 1/2/3, restarted
the dd's and then in a 4th console, did the following:

cp 1 4 &
cp 2 5 &
cp 3 6 &


Sometime after, I started seeing the above. The machine wasn't doing much
of anything else except masquerading a telnet session or two, and running
leafnode's fetchnews program.
