No, as far as I know I don't. All I have running is a couple windowmaker
docapps, xfmail, X, and that's about it. I've attached ps axf and lsmod.
Do you run into this problem when ever you run xawtv in DGA mode?
At one point I thought that maybe vmware was having troubles loading or
unloading its kernel modules, but I disabled networking and it still happened.
Strange thing is, that my dialup connection to my ISP is still up, and my
workstation is still IP masquarding for the rest of the network here... it
seems everything that is in userspace is gone.
Law of Continuity:
Experiments should be reproducible. They should all fail the same way.
