Ever since about a week or 2 now (iirc) my box running CURRENT has been
showing an almost ClockWork Instability.

Some of these entries have been reboots for installworlds ... but a lot of
them seem to show a rather frightening "clockwork" in their succession.

It looks like somehow my system runs perfectly smooth up to 24 hours.
Within the next 10 minutes after that ... it seems to suddenly collapse.
I haven't gotten to get actually getting it to trigger so i can (hopefully)
catch a console message (because of a rather busy work-schedule).

If any other people are having similair issues, i would like to hear about
it and try to find out what might be triggering this. If i recall correctly
the instability started occuring shortly after the introduction of
diskcheckd. I don't know if this might be involved or not. I have disabled
it for now, and can hopefully tell if that stops the frequent crashes.
