Re: Denial of service using SVNServe on WinXp

In general, userspace programs can't create the sort of problems you're
seeing ("hard" lockups). It it almost certainly a problem with the
kernel, a driver, or your hardware.

I'm guessing you have a bad nic, or a bad driver for it. It's also
possible you have bad memory or something else such as a processor (fan
working?) or chipset problem.

As an example, Blizzard's recent online game World of Warcraft uses a
bittorrent system to distribute patches. For some reason it exercises
NICs enough to bring out bugs in some drivers. Specifically, some
netgear cards and some linksys cards with certain driver versions will
exibit the sort of behavior you're seeing.
