There's a problem in some versions of `pump' where it gets
confused and ends up spinning indefinitely. If you're using
pump could you please try the latest RPM?
If that doesn't help, and if you're unable to kill pump
with ^C, and if other virtual consoles are not responding then
it could be a kernel problem - try hitting sysrq-T and feeding
the resulting logs through `ksymoops -m System.map'
