Comment 50 for bug 132042

Unfortunately I can't follow up on your request. My base system is 64-bit
Precise, and I only run Quantal in a VM for short periods frequently. This
problem only shows up after several hours of email. torrent, and newsgroup
downloads, and I've never run any VM long enough to show it there. As I
reported previously, the host can be locked up but connectivity in a VM is
unaffected.

I hit the glitch yesterday, so if there's any value in my going through the
apport collect process I'll be happy to do so the next time I hit it.

The problem with replacing my 3.2.0-32-generic kernel with a 3.3.7 version,
even temporarily, is that most likely my VirtualBox installation won't
work, and I'll have to redo the DKMS rigmarole coming and going...

I can't think of a good solution for this without adding another HD and
cloning over my Precise partition. However, I don't have a spare even close
to large enough. Linux is on a 1.10 TB partition of which about 300GB are
in use (including the VDI files current size).

So, if you have any alternative suggestions on how I can be of assistance,
please let me know.

Guy
