I have an interesting story - I help out at a shop
where they run Red Hat samba servers, firewall,
ftp servers and vpn server. They run a program
called docuware on the samba clients BTW.

Anyway, when the offifical 2.4.3 kernel upgrade
from Red Hat came out, we upgraded all the 7.1
boxes by the book. Subsequently the docuware
server started crashing - hard lockup, very nasty.

All the customer had to do was run something
called "active import", and the box would hang.
(FWIW, it has 3ware controllers)

On a weekend you go for the quick fix - on a
whim we installed the rawhide 2.4.7-2 kernel,
had them run "active import" and crossed our
fingers. The box stayed solid. Since then it's
been up for about 100 days - all the boxes
there are now running that rawhide kernel.

Go figure!
