FYI, I saw the same on my DECstation 5000/200 with a kernel build from
~15.12. - and less often with the 1.3H kernel which was part of one of
the 1.3.3-snapshots (this let me at least run for a day or so).
I really thought I have to blame my very old (and big) Fujitsu harddisk,
but if you see this too I get hope that its not dying...

Hmm. I have a hard time to get any use of my DECstation 3100 and 5000/200
too - seems I always choosed the unstable times to give them a try
again. Currently I have the problem with ld complaining about the _cnt
symbol on my 3100 and the above problems with my 5000/200 :/
So I can only say "mee too" without having any advice on how to fix it.
