Description of problem:
reported by Lou Lohman <LLohman@WeberMarking.com>
My problem arises out of the fact that we have a serious bug in a program that
comes as part of the AS 2.1 distribution ï¿½ vncserver. We have discovered that
using VNC in a two-way Dell 2650 (dual Xeon) locks up the system in a very short
period of time. The system has run for weeks now without the VNC in use, and
thatï¿½s the only change weï¿½ve made, so we are certain the VNC is the issue. It
does NOT happen to single processor systems ï¿½ we have several Dell 1650ï¿½s in
which we have run this software in the past, and VNC ran with impunity in them.
But, now that we have re-architected the project, and we are running the
Database Server in the two-way and the Apps server in a single processor system,
we have encountered this problem with VNC.

related to BZ#88248?
Please expand on 'locks up the system': does it respond to pings, for instance?
This sounds like a kernel problem.
