Re: Oops in 2.3.99-pre6-5

The Oops you posted here, is virtually indentical to the one which I
and others are getting in the initscript that shuts down xfs-tt on

In your case it's top which tries to read a process command line, in
the case of Debian's xfs-tt initscript it's trying to cat the command
line of the fontserver.

I'm not surprised to see that the same problem appears with top,
because top is also likely to read the info from a process which is
just quitting. I wonder what change will have caused this bug to appear!

Time to have a look at the source :-)
