Thanks for checking.
I'm pretty sure I've run into the problem within the last year (I'm
now running Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS), but to be honest, I don't go out of my
way trying to repro this bug since it's pretty catastrophic.
If you want, I'll clear a little time on my schedule and see if it
repros -- I predict it will.
