That's just a wait state used inside libkse threads meaning a thread is waiting for something to do.

Press 'H' to see each thread on its own line. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
