Yes, indeed.  Is this in the virtualized environment or on real
hardware at this point?  And how many CPU's do you have configured in
your virtualized environment, and how memory memory?  Is having a
certain number of CPU's critical for reproducing the problem?  Is
constricting the amount of memory important?

It'll be a lot easier if I can reproduce it locally, which is why I'm
asking all of these questions.
