Greetings.

Yesterday, i noticed a very weird behaviour on my computer (which is runnin=
g=20
8.0-RC3 btw.
The shells were not responding and the load was insane, and constantly=20
going up. At the time i managed to lock myself out, the load was 84 and=20
growing (i have a screenshot if anyone is interested).

That happened last night. Today, the computer was ok and i managed to ssh=20
into it. The root account was spammed with two types of cron mails.

half of them said:
mv: /var/db/entropy/saved-entropy.2: No such file or directory

and the other half said:
override r--------  operator/operator for /var/db/entropy/saved-entropy.2?=
=20
(y/n [n]) not overwritten

So i know that it's the save-entropy cron job, but i doubt that was suppose=
d=20
to happen, and i have never touched that directory. Anyone has an idea?

ps. this has happened before, and i had to go to the place the computer is =
at=20
and reset it. (the tty's did not respond either)

=2D-=20
Real programmers don't document. If it was hard to write, it should be hard=
 to=20
understand.
