>Release:        NetBSD-1.4.1
	i386 based system, Adaptec 2940uw controllor for effected disk
	system disk on a seperate Apaptec 2940u (not uw) controllor
	Network card is a Cogent EM960 (Dec chipset)
	NetBSD 1.4.1 i386 port
System: NetBSD 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (GENERIC) #1: Tue Aug 10 00:03:09 MEST 1999 fvdl@struis:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386

	Kernel panic. The system was found in the kernel debugger. The debugger
	reported that the failure occured while one of the nfsd processes was
	executing. A further messaged mentioned an error about a free block
	count update on an nfs exported disk partion.
	I issued a sync and rebooted.
	On reboot fsck only found one fault, a free block count discrepency on 
	on the nfs exported disk partition mentioned by the debugger.
	Can't say that I have tried, nor do I wish to. The disk is actively
	used for user home directories for a network of linux/openstep users.
	This problem only occoured after the recent upgrade to 1.4.1. I have
	had no such problems before ( when I used NetBSD-1.2.1 !!!!)
	Sorry no known fix.
