First, my thanks to all of you for looking into this.
It's taken more than a month, but the problem has recurred without
snapshots ever having been run. I've got a good trace of the machine in
this state (ftp://ftp.fedex.com/incoming/no-snapshots.bz2). My apologies
for the size of the debug output, but the processes had really stacked up
this time before I noticed it.
I have enough capacity that I can afford to have this machine out of
production for a while, so I've left it suspended in kdb for the time
being in case additional information is needed. Please let me know if
there's anything else I can do to facilitate troubleshooting this.
