  funny thing is that I have problem with postfix (for about few
months), cleanup is the program and the problem is that it just stops
and waits, probably in kernel since it's unkillable, when I attach gdb
and send interupt signal it is interrupted after MANY HOURS (it ends up
in open function of standard c library). I have no idea why this
happens, I haven't found any interesting messages in syslog (or on

  try to attach the gdb to master and see where it ends up (might take a
long time, even days!)

  it's on intel machine though, kernel 2.4.18
