oh. Except for this, it's been doing a good job for me so far.

Maybe, but if this can happen from 4 nfsiod's going full blast, why
have more? Recall that my rm's were running 16 wide...

Sounds like I was just losing patience then. Either way I think the
remedy is "don't do that".

If I had not been expecting hp700 to come along eventually, I would
never have bought it. I rather like the HP hardware, and while I seem
to be able to tolerate Hockey Pux better than most people I know, I
