Sure can. My newly upgraded 2.6.1 system still shows the same symptoms -
and they kicked in after <1 hour of starting.

I have three snort-mysql's processes running on this particular box -
two are in the "S" (sleep) state and the broken one is stuck in "R"
(running). Attaching to that process with strace shows ZERO activity -
normally you'd expect to see lines of text per packet. So it's
definitely unhappy.

gdb --pid=PID followed by a BT attached.

PS: this is on a CentOS4.4 system, with kernel 2.6.18 (non-smp)
