Well, I ended up reinstalling the system, and the problem went
away. :( It may have been the kernel, but I tried both the 1.2.1 and
1.2.11 kernels. The first thing I had though of was the rpc.*
daemons, I checked that they were all running, and they were. I then
stopped them, but the problem didn't go away then either.
It might have had something to do with an interrupt problem I had
between my Soundcard and my Ethernet card, but I don't know how it
Of course with Debian, it only takes 1 hour to completely install and
customize everything. :)
