This is the same problem I was having with version 3.0.25b -- which is
why I upgraded to 3.0.26a. Yesterday it got so bad that I was having to
restart it every few minutes, or the machine would get hosed. I finally
reverted to 3.0.20b and haven't had a problem since; however, the server
hasn't hit the load it was at either so who knows...
