I noticed that when I'm running with mfs (64mb swap, 32mb ram, mfs
limited to 32mb, UVM), my shark will work *very* unreliable. On my pc532
in contrast (64mb swap, 32mb ram, mfs limited to 32mb, UVM) I'm using
mfs for years now without any problems.

I'm not that sure. The mfs example seems to suggest, that there is a
vm problem somewhere. Maybe Matthhias and Todd also have a mfs?
