the time is not important they will never recover..
you might do the following.. if you have ddb in the kernel..

go to console
<CTL><ALT><ESC> to go to ddb

look for the process.. note that several threads show up..
there will be a kg (ksegrp) associated with ech thread (some
may be associated with > 1 thread.)

of the address of the kg is 0xAB123456
then do:
x/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 0xAB123456

for each kg

and let me see the result(s)..
