Comment 4 Tony Camuso 2010-07-28 09:32:41 EDT
I will try to reproduce with latest snapshot.
Comment 5 Tony Camuso 2010-07-30 08:57:28 EDT

Did you change SELinux policy?

Was the disk in the process of relabeling when the system appeared to hang?
Comment 6 Aristeu Rozanski 2010-07-30 10:56:37 EDT
no. it was during a kerneltier1, I had no direct access to the machine. and if
I recall correctly, it took so long that the external watchdog kicked in.

I think we can close this bz

System is still live if you want to root around.
