Ultra1, Eskimo reboots





Rebooted Ultra1 (the file server, web/ftp server, etc.) after an error on
what I assume is the tape drive caused things to hang for a long period
(waited about 12-13 minutes before rebooting, as the tape drive has
corrected itself after 10 minutes before).

At that point, many process on Eskimo that had hung during that period were
still hung, and would not be killed; nor would prompts come up after
logging in with ssh, etc.  After rebooting this, the shell was back up as
well.

Total downtime was about 30 minutes, yet web/ftp access would have
corrected earlier than that (about 20 minutes).
