Can you give us an idea when it last worked reliably for you?

I suspect that these are all a result of experiencing some
virtual memory bug.

It's pretty odd, as we haven't seen any problems in our testing,
but its possible that our automated testing doesn't run enough
concurrent domains to tweak it.

Can you tell us a bit more about your setup, e.g. SMP? Xeon or

What are the other domains doing when 'rpm -qa' explodes?

What version of libc are you using i.e. 'ldd /bin/rpm' ? (We've
never used mandrake, but I doubt this is significant)

If you can narrow down to a simple to reproduce test case I'm
sure we can find and fix this.

The web interface is very much a work-in-progress that we're
hoping other people will contribute on.
