Description Alexander Hass 2008-05-16 10:58:52 EDT
On a customer's system with RHEL 3 running kernel 2.4.21-47.0.1.ELsmp, we 
occasionally get empty lines (\n), when reading the /proc/stat file by a
monitoring tool.
Please have a look what causes these random changes in the proc structure.

Bug is so old, that we can't (or want to) reproduce it now...
