:Joe "Floid" Kanowitz <jkanowitz at snet.net> added the comment:
:Mixed results!  gdm and twm still work, Metacity seems happy with the patch
:(though I should let it go longer), but Firefox or gnome-session now freeze
:everything -- no response to ping -- instantly, instead of killing the mous=
:e but
:otherwise working.
:Still using an Athlon 64 3800+ x2 with a SMP kernel if that matters.
:It does feel like it cured a subtle (thought the switch might have gotten
:corroded from disuse) glitch where clicks were occasionally not registering

    If no response to a ping then it sounds like the machine crashed.
    Is it possible to connect that box to another one via a serial
    port and boot with the console over the serial port?  Then you'd
    see the panic.

    It may also be possible to build it with auto-dumping turned on
    so it automatically tries to dump the kernel core instead of sitting
    at DDB prompt.  Make sure a dump device is configured and try building
    a kernel with DDB_UNATTENDED:

options         DDB
options         DDB_UNATTENDED
options         INVARIANTS

    I think we are making progress and I'll bet the freeze is just a panic
    occuring due to something I must have missed w/ the patch.

    I will also try to reproduce it here.
