I never noticed this with parisc cvs tree, even when I use vps as a simple chroot (with just starting cron).

Not sure what hapen: when the system was a bit responsive, I launch a top and some time showing me about 50 cron child process,
and/or more then 20 logcheck process, also even before I started a vps server (so I presume to be a pb related to kernel, don't know
exactely what, much then the fact that I use glibc, dietlibc not availble for parisc, to build utils-vserver tools)?

I will check on monday if system is still alive ;-)
