It's still present as far as I know, but I didn't ever see it that often
on the AIX 5.1 platform -- maybe once or twice a month. On the Tru64
platform however it's so common (several times a week) that I had to add
some hackish script with ps and kill to avoid it (it finally works good
enough now that I don't know how often it happens there now, although I
did see it last three or four weeks ago I think). I haven't bothered so
far to use the same script on the AIX 5.1 box though - which means that
I try to keep an eye on it.
