I'm getting crashes in m_copydata on my 1.3.2 machine, and I don't like
that either.  Grr.  I suspect the two problems are unrelated, but this
just started as well, and it too is damned annoying.

I do get dumps in /var/crash, but unfortunately my swap partition didn't
grow as my memory did, so I only get partial dumps, not enough to examine
the stack.

I'm blaming the IP filter, for lack of anything else.  I log _everything_
it does, and will turn that off to see what happens on the next reboot.
