Anyone ever heard of this one:

When the cpbackup routines attempts to umount the backup drive, the server goes into some kind of CPU runaway and then crashes:

mtab looks like this:

/dev/sda5 / ext3 rw,usrquota 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0

fstab looks like this:

And here's the df result:

Does anyone see anything wrong here?

Thanks very much for anything.
