    Ack, don't say that... I just downgraded our server to 2.0.5-RELEASE 
to see if that will give us longer uptimes.  :-/

    Yeah, it's more serious than that here.  When the system locks up,
everything is dead.  As I said, I've put 2.0.5-RELEASE on with a
kernel to handle a larger number of open files and mbuf clusters.  The
one major thing that is missing is the pcvt driver.

    Unfortunately, I can't rule out NFS because our anonymous FTP
archive sits on a BSD/OS drive (which I don't think FreeBSD will
recognize) and user home directories are mounted from another central
server.  I could probably move ftp.io.org over to another machine for
a week (if 2.0.5R crashes in the next couple of days) and see what
effect that has.
