Rrrg. This is going to be harder than I thought. Rebooting, everything
works fine! So this is something that kicks in after something less than
eight days uptime, consistently on every box I own, but is fine on
reboot.

I'm still fairly sure this is a regression -- my machines are often up
for a lot longer than that and I've never seen this before I upgraded to
4.20.x -- but I don't think I'm going to identify it by mindless
bisection. I might have to actually *think* about it.
