Michael, thanks for that excellent explaination.  I agree that a periodic
timer would be helpful .. especially with respects to the 3COM.  However,
I was able to recreate the "stopped logging" scenario within minutes of
booting .. So that wouldn't help with what was happening with the AHC.

I think for my situation, the short term solution is to just use a 
different card.

Since it was occuring within seconds of running my for i in sd1a sd2a ...
it wouldn't help :(

Thanks again.
