System: NetBSD basalt 1.0_BETA NetBSD 1.0_BETA (BASALT) #4: Fri Sep 30 00:17:49 PDT 1994 thorpej@helix:/usr/src/sys/arch/hp300/compile/BASALT hp300

hp 380, 24meg mem, scsi, hpib, hs-hpib, dca, dcm, catseye, lan, etc.

maxusers at 24 in kernel config.

	While bringing up my new 380, it came time to dump what was on the
	hpib disks onto the scsi disk.  I typically use dump/restore in 
	a pipeline to do this.

	After booting into single user mode, fsck -p'ing, mounting all
	physical partitions, I proceded as follows:

	# mount /dev/sd0a /mnt
	# dump 0sf 222000 - / | (cd /mnt; restore rf -)

	The dump gets through Pass I, Pass II, and does the following
	at the beginning of Pass III

	vm_fault(f1000, 7e6000, 1, 0) -> 1
	  type 8, code [mmu,,ssw]: 545
	trap type 8, code = 545, v = 7e6000
	kernel: MMU fault trap
	stopped at	_free+0x30:	movaw	(a3),a1

	a trace gives the following:


Pretty sure it's not a hardware problem - the machine, just a couple of
days ago, was running HP-UX 9.00, HP VUE, FrameMaker, etc, etc, etc.

	See above.
	Well, I don't have a clue.  The thing is great in multiuser.

	I really believe that this is related to the `freezing'
	problems that I have on a 380 at work, which dies randomly when
	maxusers is set at 32 or higher.  Ever since I brought maxusers
	down to 16, the machine has been great.  So guess what I'm going
	to try here...I'll admit that 24 was a strange number in this
	case, and I'm wondering why I ever picked it...I guess 8 just
	sounded too low...
