I tried it again with fewer packages and it seemed happy.  Still does but it's 
thrashing the hard disk now.  Seems to have been a strange little thing.

I'm curious if you could duplicate this with 7.1.  I've done a search in
Bugzilla, and this is the first report of this type that we've seen.  It seems
to be an uncommon bug.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-05-31 17:54:28 UTC
If you get a chance to try 7.1 and the behavior reappears, please reopen this
bug.  Thanks for your report.
