	Thanks for the effort,
	I upgraded my home email server to NetBSD/i386 1.4.2_ALPHA (how brave
	I am) and seen several panics due to filesystem code.  There seem to
	be some locking problem somewhere in ufs/vfs (not lfs, as suggested
	in the memo from releng).  It is not really related to load, occurs
	on relatively low load situations as well.

	I'll try to gather stack traces.  If you have similar experience
	I would like to hear your problem.
