It looks like you just got done with the 4.5 Advanced class ;-) I saw
the same thing during the class on a Solaris System, but only ONE of the
machines was doing it. You are not going crazy, and the instructor
didn't know what was going on, either. Unfortunately, I still have not
gotten an answer on this and not being much of a Solaris admin yet, I
don't know where in Solaris to look.=20

The only thing I can think of is that there is a kernel parm somewhere
that is limiting it.
