Just a stupidity test...kill 'update' and restart it with 'update -f 1
-s 5' and see if that affects things. You might be getting huge buffer

2.0.34 hmm? Not using the aic7xxx driver at all are you? My second bet
is that you have SCSI-bus contention, or SCSI driver problems. 2.0.34 is
supposed to be toxic with adaptec drivers under some setups. I saw a
notification to this effect. Supposedly new drivers are available.
