One problem that I had was that I had compiled the kernel with software
watchdog, but never made the device.  Then, I installed the "bo" watchdog
package.  It never did anything, as far as I know, because there was no
device.  Then, when I upgraded to hamm, I believe the watchdog package
created the device for me.  It suddenly started working.  The first time I
got the load over 10, <BAMM> - reboot.  It logged it in daemon.log.

This probably has nothing to do with anything, but I was fairly amused by
