Additional info:

I have ALL etarra applied, as of 7/09/2002...

This just started happening, so maybe it is related to psmisc module, 
although I tried backing off to previous version without any luck.
Comment 1 Rob Trotter 2002-07-16 11:33:12 EDT
I tried to narrow this thing down a bit. 

  Backed off applied modules to previous versions-releases:

    1. psmisc 
    2. glibc, glibc-common, glibc-devel, glibc-kernheaders 
    3. ucd-snmp, ucd-snmp-utils 
    4. nscd

      Following each module, backoff, I reboot system, logged into kde, and
      attempted loggout.. ALL still hung..

  Went back further and found kernel was previously updated to, 18-4 -> 18.5.
Tried the i586 arch version of the 18-5 kernel on my i686 machine, but system
still hung at logout.

  Finally, backed off kernel to 18-4 (i686) and logout no longer hangs. So seems
something to do with the kerenl on faster machines. My i686 is a piii 733. I
  also have AMD k62 500 system which has no problem with the new kernel 18-5.

I wonder if this a symptom of large problem(s).

I'm changing component to kernel, from ld.so

Is this an i810/i815 video chipset? If so it's a known issue recently fixed:
Comment 3 Rob Trotter 2002-07-18 11:11:19 EDT
Yes it is i815 chip set.. I've loaded your 18-5e kerenl and it addresses the
problem mentioned in this report.

Please duplicate this to any existing bug, as needed.. I'll look forward to the
next released kernel..

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
