What kernel version are you using? Are you using the hugemem kernel?  
Comment 3 john stultz 2004-08-17 14:43:37 EDT
Billy: Any chance you could provide the kernel version you are using? 
Also if you are not already, could you try using the hugemem kerel to 
see if the problme persists?

Is there any way we could get an update on this bug? 
Comment 5 john stultz 2004-11-24 16:32:17 EST
Billy Newport: Are you still seeing this issue? If so could you 
report the kernel version you are using and if you are not already 
doing so, try the hugemem kernel?

This bug is really stale and I suggest it be closed.
Comment 7 Ernie Petrides 2005-09-14 16:06:47 EDT
Closing due to lack of response from original reporter.
