I think 338461.1  and 361680.1 has the information, although they seem
to think that it occurs after 248 days and I think this user said his
uptime was less than that.  My guess is there are other ways for it to
big triggered at earlier points.

The patch is also listed in the patches section of Metalink, although it
is password protected so you have to open a TAR to get it.
