The last time I ran it with the lenny kernel, I just booted it and
walked away.  I returned 20 minutes later to find it had hung.  The time
on the display was five minutes behind the one on the wall.  Both clocks
are usually in sync as they get their time from the NTP infrastructure.

When logged into the machine I notice a lot of network connections
stacking up in the netstat output.  This continues until even basic
tools such as ps & less won't function.  Then its time to reboot.
