!!! What is the information associated with these panics? can you
send dmesg output?
There's a long history of spontaneous reboots on the i386 with lpt,
and it's never been particularly debuggable. On an alpha, you might
be able to actually provide useful information.

1.3.3 will contain an ipfilter that works on the alpha. (see my
posting to netbsd-users for more info about 1.3.3 timeframe.)
However, on the alpha, because of other improvements in the code since
the 1.3 branch, -current may make sense...
