This does not look like any logs I've seen before.  From this clip, it
appears that there are at least 3 different groups of clients each using
different buff-in files.  One with 50 some odd blocks remaining, one
with 20, and one that can't write to or read from a buff-in/out file.

Maybe the cwd for some client isn't what you think it is and is actually
running in the wrong directory.  How many different machines are you
running this on?  How about rsh'lling to each machine and kill all your
processes, then just restart them with known good directories and
buffers?

It looks like the machine that can't access any buffer files is about
20-30 minutes behind the others ... look for the one with the slow
clock.
