I got a few more, but before spamming this list with straces I have
some news. "We" managed to reproduce the hangs on that particular
machine more easily now, but I didn't have the time yet to try
to reproduce it on my machines. I hope tonight ...

But I can relay the answers to the following questions:
> I don't see any large times being reported at the beginning of the strace.

First reproducibility: Initially the 20051024 hung every ~ 10 minutes,
but "now" (At the time I got the email) it is running for more than
15 hours.
> - noticed the problem
1 min - several hours, then doing ps and cygcheck.

> - attached to process with strace
5-10 minutes after noticing (max)

> - performed ls
 < 1 min (right after...)
