I saw exactly the same warnings on my Linux box three days ago (running
debian-unstable at the latest level, with Debian kernel 2.0.30-9
replaced by my own self-made 2.0.32 kernel).  The box became more and
more slow, and eventually did not respond at all. I had to press on the
reset button :/

(and so on until crash)
