Ubuntu Dapper Drake V2.6.15 -28-386 set up as a server on a PC with P4
processor, 2Gig RAM, SCSI RAID 1 Fujitsu 73Gig Ultra 320, HP Tape DRive.

Once or twice per month server effectively hangs with screen showing
100's of scrolling messages containing incrementing numbers in square
brackets.  It has to be manually restarted.

It only happens while running Flexbackup/Afio when it's doing a full
back up of about 13Gig of  Word, Excel or jpg files from server to DDS-4
tape.  Logs reveal that it can happen anywhere, ie somteimes at the
start of the backup and sometimes in the middle or near the end of

Backup is initiated by crontab each night with following entry:
30 21  * * 1-5 root    flexbackup -set all -ignore-errors >/dev/null
