Yeah, I know it's old; in fact it panicked while I was trying to build
today's -current.  I figured I'd post this anyway.

panic: soclose: NOFDREF

_syscall() at _syscall+0x12b
--- syscall (number 42) ---

I was doing a "cd /usr/src; nohup make -k obj >& log" and "less log"
using "F" in less (which is like "tail -f") from a telnet session over
my SLIP connection.

It seems like -current has become much less stable in the last couple
weeks.  I can remember it staying up for weeks at a time, and now it
usually crashes at least once a day.

Of course, it started crashing roughly around the time I moved my root
partition and half of my swap space from SCSI to IDE and moved /tmp
from FFS to MFS, so perhaps the problem lies there instead.  I'm still
using pccons, so pcvt's not the culprit.
