I once got the same results from
	ls -l /linux/dev | less
(actually, I was in the /linux/dev dir)
When I tried to run any program, it just hung until I pressed ^C a
gazillion times. I finally had to boot the computer hard.

I tried the same thing later and the computer rebooted itself after some
messages like:
/linux/dev/<name of device file>: Computer bought the farm

I tried it _again_, but no crash (darn! :) )

Weird, huh?
