Nope, the uptime is 144 days.

Thanks for the info, it's very interesting. Since I hate Red Hat
(especially arcane,
unsupported versions) anyways, I think I'll disregard the problem for
now and just
reinstall the server. If it'll still occur on the new system, I'll
have a deeper look into it.

Thanks again,
