	i386 EISA 16MB AHA 2xED 2xComm-Boards NetBSD 1.1
System: NetBSD 1.1 NetBSD 1.1 (COMMA) #0: Sun Mar 24 20:10:06 MET 1996 i386

	The system was reacting to ping, but otherwise was acting pretty dead.
	Upon inspection of the console it was found that it was scrolling
	with "vm_pager_page_clean: page_free error" messages as fast as the 
	console would go.
	The system wasn't reacting to console keyboard either, and was brought
	back to sanity using the reset switch.
	beats me. Comma is a fairly busy system and has been running 1.1 
	some time too, but didn't show this error before.
