that would be good; as the box is also SMP it'd be even better
to make sure HT is a problem.

Some have reported issues with processes stuck in tstile.
I've never seen it myself, neither on ftp.fr.netbsd.org
nor ftp.lip6.fr which is a mirror for several major linux distros, and
gets an average of 10 http requests/s and quite important ftp traffic
too. Both hosts are SMP. ftp.fr has an athlon x2, ftp.lip6.fr
has 2 3.4Ghz Xeon, but with HT turned off (I can't remember if
I turned it off on purpose, or if I just forgot to turn it on).
Both have been stable for the last 3 months (exept power failures).
