I got a lot of silo overflows when I had pcvt installed (not even in use,
I was on another machine, telnetted in, but loads of them still got logged.
Honestly, I didn't think they were logged anymore anyway, but they sure are.)

Anyhow, I've been having other hardware problems (such as a flakey external
cache, I think) but when all the neat things I've paid for are turned off,
my machine runs for days (6 or so before I brave a new kernel) with slip
up all that time at 38400 baud.
