[Please cc me, I am not subscribed to debian-kernel]
I have tried to further investigate the problem leading to a system
freeze on connection to a remote cifs share.
On one occasion I was able to take a screen shot. Unfortunately, my mail
with the attached screen shot (100 kb) did not make it to the bts or the
list. (Is there a prefered way of handling this?)
On another occasion I found the excerpts in syslog, that are attached.
I'm not sure if this is really relevant, though, since I could not
reproduce the syslog entries or the on screen output of the panic.
I am told that the remote system that kills my debian box on connection
is running a Netapp 6070 with Data OnTAP 7.2.4 (what ever that is).
As far as I could tell, the problem does not occur, if the remote system
is accessed with the fuse tools (kde konqueror). Unfortunately, these
lack some of the functionality I require (synchronisation with unison or
I don't know how to proceed from here. I could try to capture and post a
trace of the network traffic leading to the kernel crash, if that is
I'm not sure if that has any security relevance (system freeze on
connecting to remote computer).
