1909 x86_64 still locked up on my Tyan 2885 SMP, but 1914 has been up ten
hours and has shuffled more than 300GB on disk using cpio (local) and
rsync (remote).

Prior to 1914, recent kernels would kill the box in 10-200 minutes under
much lighter load (like browsing the web or typing in a terminal).

Thanks for the warning.
