Please post vmstat 5 output when this happens. Also try getting a
thread dump with Sysrq.

Could be due to this one: ChangeSet@1.1713.26.299?
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-12-08 01:04:25 EST
fixed in the 2.6.9 updates ?
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:11:40 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
