So, while ssh'ing _successfully_ to a DNS server I maintain, I noticed that my gateway would grind its disk whenever traffic flowed through the ssh connection.

I login (same machine that used to have the "BUG: dst underflow" problems) and see

filling my logs.

This is i686 HyperThreaded (fake SMP) box running 2.6.10-rc1-bk16.
