Well, after 2 days of uptime and some activity all the symptoms are gone,
and no date problems.

The thing I don't understand is that I cvsuped on Oct 14, rebooted with
new world & kernel, left the machine running for 12 hours, saw the problems
(stucked ping & netstat, power cycle necessary to reboot, ...) reappear, rebooted the
box Oct 15 and nothing since. The only thing I changed on the last reboot was
to put back debug.mpsafenet to 1.

In all cases thanks to all for your help.
