No, it was several years since I looked at etop. Thanks for reminding me
about it, I should have thought of that myself.

How would a bug in some low level function like the one discussed in 


look in etop? Does anyone know?

Etop isn't ideal though since it requires some knowledge to use, and
also might not be practically usable in a situation where everyone wants
the production system back to normal state as soon as possible...
