Archives of the logs and reports are always on my web site:

Yes, the process group kill code is probably nuking the Win32 blead 
smoker.  The maint and smoke-me smokers haven't been killed, so the impact 
is limited but still annoying. (Kind of like the test in blead that is 
hanging and I manually kill every so often.)

As for the reports, I had a hard drive go bad in the RAID5 so I shut the 
machine off until the warranty replacement arrived.  I updated the status 
pages[1] but didn't mail the list as it wasn't "interesting enough".
