Since I started using -current a week ago, I am experiencing occasional
seemingly random crashes caused by the NFS client code. I am not sure
if this bug exists under 3.0 as well, but I think it's important this bug
is fixed before 3.0 is released. Unfortunately, I can't reproduce the
crash at will. It happens when an NFS volume is mounted, but I'm not
sure when exactly.
The bug is reported under PR 32072, and I can send kernel & coredump to
anyone who is interested in debugging it. I tried debugging it myself,
but it is too deep in parts of the kernel I'm not familiar with, so I
thought I'd let you know before 3.0 is released with this.

is especially attractive, not only because it can be economically
and scientifically rewarding, but also because it can be an aesthetic
experience much like composing poetry or music."
