Likely cause of io-net crashing during benchmarking? (6.0, l

We have an eval copy of the 6.0 release (on x86 PC hardware).
While running lmbench, I repeatably see io-net crashing in memcpy.
Since I have only stripped objects, I can’t do a whole lot of debugging
at this point.

I sometimes also see the photon process crash while running lmbench
on the graphics console.

I suspect some form of resource shortage that isn’t being gracefully handled,
but the system log doesn’t show anything interesting. Any hints on how to
get more useful debug info would also be appreciated.
