I will try to setup the environment, but to be honest no more 6.X for us
until 6.2 or 6.3.. We have lost clients already.

There is one thing I can easily recreate that would very helpfull to solve.
The 6.X NFS clients freeze if the NFS server goes away.

Although solving both, server and client, would be great for us if we could
at least solve the client.. it would be very helpfull.. until our next
server comes.. in which we are going to install 5.5

Agree.. but with 4+ crashes in less than a week it has reached the point
where we have moved workload away from the most problematic machine.. to try
to aliviate the problem.. but still was not enough.. to prevent at least one
big customer of ours to go.. We don't keep tight track of the smaller ones.

The problem is when you are a taxi driver... and it cost you money to have
the car off the streets.. and you don't know when the 'knocking' will
Will setup my laptop with the debug settings and will then work on trying to
debug the client problem... depending on how that goes will then possibly
try the server that is giving us problems.
