you're lucky.  I've been completely wedged for hours at a time.  a panic
and reboot would be less disruptive.

is there any way to find out how many buffers each connection is using?
a combination of netstat -a and -m?

this is all still assuming it is an mbuf issue and something else.  I
still don't know what else draws from mclpool.
