I had a "hang" last night. While the 3 bf1942_lnxded processes were
still there in the ps output, there was no reaction from the server.
Also screen didn't attach anymore.
Unfortunately, I currently have no information about when it exactly
stopped responding, or under which circumstances, but there were
complaints about lag yesterday evening.
2.4.18 SMP enabled (DIY Compiled to keep out anything that isn't needed)

Yeah, I actually had OB7 crash on me last night around 18:30 central.
The server was full at the time. I didn't post anything, though,
because I got dumb and deleted the core dump, so I have no backtrace.
It had been running for about 32 hours.
This time, it was a Segmetation Fault, though, not the Illegal
Instruction I got with OB4.
