So I was clicking around my Azureus window wondering why my downloads all stopped. (Yes, I'll admit it. I've switched to another GUI application that has no business requiring a GUI. It just beats the crap out of console bittorrent.) The network was up, my internet connection was good... oh. Apparently, the kernel crashed.Oops: 0000 [#1]
EIP is at queue_reroute+0x31/0x60
Process java (pid: 681, threadinfo=ed7f6000 task=ca14f030)
This is the nicest OS level crash I've ever seen. I just didn't even notice it. I think the only side effect is the zombie java process. Everything else just kept running. Even the app that made the crashing syscall kept running because the network stuff was in a different thread. Wow. If Azureus had been smart enough to restart that thread, I might not ever have noticed!
Okay, so I don't trust the state of the kernel anymore, but hey. I'll take the ability to close down everything and save all my work!
