At the time we discovered this problem, we were also getting an "event storm" 
with several devices being misconfigured and having spanning tree problems, 
so I was seeing lots n lots of traps come in. My thought is that netmon was 
having a hissy fit not knowing what to do with all this information and kind

network was fixed, I was able to run that command again no problem.
