Could you elaborate please ? I have got two production systems with ext3 
v2.2.19 basically just being an MTA and web-based email interface (ala 
Yahoo/Hotmail). I am getting (not really constant) hangs on the system. It 
just seems to stop working -- logging into the console just times out; 
pressing the "Enter" key works but everything else fail even Ctrl-Alt-Del
does not respond.

The servers arent't under very heavy load (load average doesn't really
bite into swap too much - maybe hovering at 1.x something; topping out at
2.x - 3.x at most during office peak hours).

Any other information required ? Anyone care to share on whether they have 
got 2.2.19ext3 servers under heavy load without any stability problems (I 
can tolerate a performance hit).
