I just got a freeze with 1.4Q. No panic, no crash dump, system
completely unresponsive. This time the system was mostly idle -- make
build wasn't running, and nothing else was running that would be
starting lots of processes. X was running, with a few xterms open,
one containing a screen session with emacs running. Netscape (BSDI
version) was running but wan't actively being used.
The system was built from yesterday's sources, including:
$NetBSD: kern_proc.c,v 1.38 2000/01/22 16:53:50 thorpej Exp $
The system is:
