Good news! (though posting this is tempting fait a bit). Since
installing the XFS/CVS containing this fix my server has now
been up for 21+days, this is a record (it's average was ~4 days
but it did manage up to 14 days).
I also applied the 'vnode.patch' that you posted in response
to my problems on 6th March, as far as I'm aware that has not
gone into the CVS tree? Is this still a valid patch? My
understanding is that I'd probably seen at least these two bugs
at various times?
Many thanks for all your help.
