NON SUMMARY: Re: 'some logger thread(s) are stuck' crash...?

I haven't gotten any insight into this question except that "it
could be any number of things." 

One user told me to apply the recommended patch cluster, but of
course the error hasn't repeated itself, so I'm not sure whether
it is fixed or whether the problem hasn't occurred again.

I'd also like to publicly berate Jason Shatzkame, Manohar Nayak, Robert
Rheault, George Badinter, Gustavo Tobares, Roger Leoonard, Cheryl
Beedy, David Ballesteros, George Robinson, and Iquo Abia for sending me
their idiotic "out of office autoreply" messages. It sure is nice to
know that every time I send a message to Sun Managers, I'll get an
immediate flood of messages indicating which MS Exchange users are out
of the office. Gee. Thanks, guys. Maybe they'll send me the worm du
jour next week too.


For google's sake, the original message (note there is still no
solution as yet) follows:
