um... yeah, well I spoke a bit too soon. I'm getting hangs too,
but seemingly only when I'm running X. (esp. if I run firefox)
When it happens my machine appears to be completely hung, except that
I can break into ddb once, but then doing something like trying to kill
a process causes even ddb to hang.
I tried to get a core dump with "reboot 0x104", but after it wrote
it out, it panic'd (something about wdc polled command not done) and
overwrite the original dump. argh!
Given that you can fix your problem by reverting libc, and I
haven't updated anything beyond the ipf binaries, we might have
separate issues here.
