I'm also experiencing this sometimes.  I think it has been mostly
caused for me in moments where heavy UUCP-over-TCP traffic went over
my external slip link, and i've tried to do something else in the same
second across the link (ping someone outside, rlogin to freefall
etc.).

The bad effect for me was that this will also predictably cause me
mail loss (the UUCP jobs did already complete, but their data files on
the disk are either missing [not yet backed] or totally garbled [vm or
file system consistency problem]).

As for you, i cannot reproduce the behaviour, but have seen it at
least three times with totally different kernels.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
