For what its worth, I had a lot of problems on the I865P board, and It
boiled down to memory corruption.
The machine had lots of "random" crashes, meanng that they were not occuring
when I do something specific.
The machine startted to panic as soon as the load got high.
I took out the memory, and placed it into another slot and the machine is
cruising along happily now.

The other questions is what is the date of the -CURRENT tree that is giving
this problems? I can recall quite a few problems, which were fixed, that
could cause this problem.
