	During an amanda run, the machine (as client) will
	spontaneously reboot itself while dumping over the
	network. The reboots aren't very regular, either.
	Sometimes the machine will reboot while dumping /opt,
	sometimes /usr (this may be due to amanda's scheduling).
	It doesn't seem to reboot while dumping /.

	Filesystem  1K-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Mounted on
	/dev/wd0a       98967    26232    67786    27%    /
	/dev/wd0e      495151   203090   267303    43%    /usr
	/dev/wd0f      838854   245339   551572    30%    /opt

	Somebody on the port-i386 mailling list suggested
	using -current (1.4.1) and/or disabling the rnd
	pseudo-device. I tried the -current source with and
	without the rnd and same results both times.

	Place the machine on an automatic dump schedule, or
	use a remote machine to
	  rsh geyser /sbin/dump -0 -f- /usr

	Doing a dump over the network seems to be key, since
	dumping locally by hand doesn't trigger the reboot.

	This works in mulit-user mode (kern.securelevel = 0);
	too annoyed to try single-user mode or other securelevels.

	The only workaround I've found is to use a 1.4GENERIC
	kernel. My guess is the apm device. Don't know if it
	is /usr/sbin/apmd or /dev/apm(ctl) at fault; I just
	know that if I boot with a 1.4 GENERIC kernel, the 
	above rsh doesn't trigger a reboot.
