Well, but .. reports were that the problem could be reliably repeated
and avoided depending on which kernel one booted.

Oh .. what kernel were you running that sh(1) on?  It's possible that
the kernel problem could affect sh(1).

Furthermore, any hypothetical sh(1) malfunction wouldn't stop you
from, say, doing a telnet(1) or ssh(1) in. Were other sessions affected
or was just the one sh(1) process wedged?
