Don't know if that's the same problem as above, but a few minutes ago my 
mail-server locked down completely. First pine froze, then more processes 
started freezing, then the system became unusable, ssh logins got stuck, 
USB- and ps/2 keyboards. I managed to get a trace with the "w" sysrq:

now you see why I wrote "ext3 deadlock." It's y VIA C7 system, running 
2.6.23-rc9-g804b3f9a, no problems since 5 October, when the kernel has 
been built. No Oops / warnings in dmesg. Or has this been fixed since 
23-rc9?

Thanks
