Probably not the cause (as the shell service downtime is displayed on 
the status page), but should you run into strange issues with SF this 
can be interesting:

(  2006-07-13 09:23:52 - Project CVS Service, Project Shell Service, 
Project Subversion (SVN) Service, Web Site  )   A recent 
kernel exploit was released that allowed a non admin user to escalate 
privileges on the host pr-shell1. We urge all users who frequent this 
host to change their password immediately and check their project group 
space for any tampering. As a precaution, we have blocked access to all 
project resources by password until the user resets their password. 
After the password has been reset, project resources should be 
accessible within 5 minutes.

I really wonder why they don't inform their users any better.



PS: Thx to Jonathan Woithe for pointing this out on freebob-devel.
