Actually no. It is an SMP ready system, but with a single PII 450. As I
responded to Lee's response, I am not sure that I completely trust the
results of this trace anyway.

I would like to know why you guys think this may be a false positive. Is
it just the extremely long latency? Or is there something else that
makes it look suspect?

By the way I just posted two more traces, one that I caught last night
and one from this morning:

This is another one similar to the last but much more reasonably latency:

And this one this morning appears to be from updatedb running, while the
tests were running. It's worth noting that this one appears to have
happened about the same time today that the other ~4100+ one happened
yesterday. Also worth noting is that the system was probably swapping
pretty good when this occurred.
