I have a virtual server running sles11sp3 / oes11sp2, that houses my
Groupwise gwia and an mta. It also runs Sophos a/v on it and VMWare

Not too long ago I applied the (IIRC) latest kernel update, as I did on
all my sles/oes boxes, and now this server has started acting flaky.

After it has been up a little over ten days, I am unable to ssh into
it, I get prompted for a username, but then it wants to hang prompting
for a password.

Also, xdm starts on my servers when they come up, but this one takes
about 5 minutes or so for xdm to start.

Any ideas where to check?
