I still get crashes under NetBSD 2.0.2 with heavy NFS or sometimes 
only heavy local disk activity, but only on the SMP host. This has 
been reported before, and I don't much new or interesting to add, 
except that I can usually get a coredump by typing blind Ctl-Alt-Esc, 
Ctl-Alt-F1, 'reboot 0x104'.
