This happens on rdist too. I normally build on one machine and then
rdist everything but a few config files in /etc around to everyone
else. This has worked flawlessly for years.
Now with softdep on all the filesystems I also saw this overflow and
the target machines would all hang. I needed to reboot and restart
the rdist 3x before all the files were in sync again.
