:I've spent all morning trying to get a ktrace of the problem
:without success.  ktrace.out keeps using up all my free disk
:space -- I made room for a 10GB partition, and that just got
:filled up.  I've been running kdump on the result for 35 minutes
:now and it just keeps scrolling by on my screen.  Dunno if I'll
:be able to tell anything when it finally stops.  This process
:does not scale well!

    Have you tried trimming the ktrace options?  e.g.

    ktrace [-f outputfile] -i -t cns ...

    Only kdump if you actually get the error, and then you'd probably want
    to do something like 'kdump [-f inputfile] | tail -5000 | less'

    Be sure you ktrace to a different partition then the one the objects
    are stored on.
