:Yesterday I upgraded my desktop PC, which had been up for almost a month
:without a problem, to DragonFly_Stable. The build and install went fine,
:and I kept it running until it panicked in the mid night probably during
:or after daily cron job. This is a PentiumIV box running SMP kernel
:(but no HyperThreading available). The box has two rootfs'es, and I'm
:running older kernel/world now(built on Sept. 9).

    This is the second bug report so there's obviously a memory leak in
    the vfs cache somewhere.  I am going to track it down and see if it's
    fixable without having to advance the stable tag through current work.
    On the otherhand, I think I've finally stabilized stage 7 so I may
    wind up just advancing the stable tag if I can't fix it easily
