A gist of the same, there were some changes that were introduced in Websphere 184.108.40.206 which made WAS to be vulnerable to crash easily identifiable during any stress/load testing. PK64529 resolves this issue and it is available in the 2nd link provided above. The fix is available with Fix Pack 220.127.116.11 released on 3-Jun-2008.
We didn't upgrade to build 17, but installed the patch and the load testing continued with no issues. In fact, no failures, no errors, JVM heap usage hovering around 250M min heap was set at 512M, Process CPU usage about 6%, the response time was also satisfactory.
So, if you've installed WAS 18.104.22.168 on AIX 5.3, please make sure you have the patch installed as well.
