I don't really know... my Windows laptop had gone to sleep with a ssh
connection open to the Alpha. When I woke it up, it had lost the ssh
connection, so I tried to reconnect and got no response. Then tried to
ping the alpha, and didn't get anything back from that either. So I went
to look at the console and saw that it had crashed and was busy fscking.

Whether that's at all related, I have no idea :) The machine is also a
mail and web server, and runs a webmail program that a dozen or so
people use.
