the specific bug that caused my issue is *CSCta02715*
Now, I find it scary that a command element related to logging could take
down an array of 6500's.  Furthermore, we had been running the SXH5 code
with the "logging count" command element enabled on two of the four core
switches for 30 days (the code had actually been running for three months+)

logging count is a way to quickly check log messages on a switch/router, and
provides simple output that can be used to identify recurring and troubling
