This might be good to test on brutus, no?

Hence my inquiry to you folks about brutus.  :-)

Good experience to hear.  If we were to find a similar problem with GSX on
brutus, I expect that VMware would want to know, and we could offer to try
ESX in the same configuration, although I would not take brutus down to do
it.  I'd test it on one of the other x345s first, assuming there is still
one unused.

Anyhow, give it some thought.  :-)
