    you know, it can be so many things...

    1 thing that caused something like this for me, was a bad secondary hard drive. The issue was that DMA was enabled on the master, while the slave would not DMA up...thus, a crowded pipeline apparently...

    Then again, a funky script could do it too...

    Not really sure what to say except that if its important to get it fixed, get an admin ;) You could be here in the forums and going through logs forever...
