I see hangs whenever heavy file system IO takes place (like the daily scripts
that run every night or building a NetBSD distribution). Often, currently
running programs will continue to work, but new ones will not start. Typing
return at shell prompt (I'm using bash) will not give me another prompt. ^C
and ^Z have no effect. I can (usually) switch from the X-windows display
back to console 1 (with ctrl-alt-f1) where I can access DDB. The DDB
backtrace always procduces
DDB lost frame for netbsd: Xintr_legacy1+0xb4..
a ps shows several programs (e.g., qmgr, korganizer, kdeinit (times 4)) in
state vnlock and ioflush in lfs_dir (/usr and /home are LFS, / and /var are
FFS, /tmp is tmpfs).
This is i386 current from 23 Feb (basically GENERIC_LAPTOP).
I'm doing a cvs update this morning and I will try a new kernel, but I do not
see any source changes that appear relevant. Is there any (other)
information that would be useful and that I should try to capture when/if it
