Hello Stuart,

Um - define "hung"...

Networking stops happening. At this point, processes are still active.
Because I am using NFS root, any process that touches the filesystem
will then hang. It doesn't take too long for enough processes to touch
the FS for the system to be useless. As a test, I put a tmpfs on /tmp,
and ran sash from there. That shell would remain responsive after the
rest of the system was hung waiting on NFS.
