Hello,

This is on a pretty old kernel but Carsten reports that it happens
occassionally in a pretty large setup involving 1500+ machines (please
feel free to fill in).  This happens pretty sporadically so reporting
it just in case this is a yet unknown problem.  As I understand it,
testing with newer kernel isn't out of question but it being a
production environment, not a very easy thing.

Thanks.
