My machine has had a few freezes too now. After installing 2.0.0 it's been
up for about 9 days. Then it decided to crash and ever since it's been freezing
every 2 to 3 days. I can switch vc's, but not even enter a name.

When I came home today, it had decided not to accept incoming connections
anymore. The only way to get to a shell was via the vc, rlogin and telnet did
nothing and ssh stopped after I entered a password. This was fixed after (yet
another) reboot.

The BBS that is listening on ports 23 and 1976 was behaving as normal though.
