My machine in question has just run out of memory and crashed.  It had been 
operating OK until I tried to copy a set of Fedora ISO files to it's NFS 
share.  I conclude that the bugs which Steve fixed were not the ones that 
afflict my machine.

I'm now upgrading it to 2.6.15-1.2009.4.2_FC5, I'll see if that fixes it.
