	System: NetBSD 1.3_ALPHA NetBSD 1.3_ALPHA (PIZZA) #4:
	    Sat Nov 22 10:51:56 PST 1997
	    arch/i386/compile/PIZZA i386
	Pentium II 300
	128 megs of ECC SDRAM
	ASUS P2L97-DS motherboard
	Seagate 2.26gb ST32272W, 7200 rpm, 8ms, Barracuda using onboard
	    aic-7880 ultra wide SCSI

	Every few hours we are getting:

	     panic: cluster_rbuild: too much memory
	     syncing disks... panic: locking against myself

	     dumping to dev 401, offset 786432
	     dump 128 [...] 3 2 1

	We have crash dumps available.  This machine is a lightly loaded (0.14)
	outgoing newsfeed machine running customized software that allows
	it to mostly run out of ram.  Disk activity is under 10 transactions
	per second, on average.  A 8 meg md0 /tmp is being used.

	Process count is around 34.  Buffer cache is set to 32 megs.  Free
	mem is usually around 32 megs.  Interrupts per second is usually well
	under 500.

	Unknown.  It just seems to happen on this machine.
