Thanks for your reply.

Mem test is fine.  I've compiled a kernel and done buildworld 5 times in 
one day, on a loop :)  They all went fine.

I actually ran portsdb in a loop too since that seems to be a fairly 
intensive process...

The mail flood of 1.2 million emails looked good too until it started 
saying it couldn't write to the mail spool.  Then idiot me did an ls -al 
/var/mail (which did a FULL request to ldap) and everything just hung from 
there, including console.  Maybe I used up all available connections or 
something ... an ls -al usually takes a few minutes anyway cause nss and 
pam have to talk to ldap first, but this took about 15 and still no 
respone :)
