It is working now, but I don't know why. I restarted nis and autofs, and
again things started getting weird, SSH login became impossible, ls hung.
I rebooted again, and forced a fsck at boot, and all of a sudden all is
working as it should.
Is this just luck? Was the fsck necessary? I already had this problem some
months ago, on the same machine, right after Ubuntu had been installed.
And suddenly the problem just went away. These machines stay up all the
time, so there were not many reboots until now, and as long as there is no
reboot, they run stable.
I sure would like to know what this is, but at least the system is working
again. Next time it happens, I will keep just rebooting it until it is
