Which panic is that? There was a bug in the pool code that was recently

Module Name:	src
Committed By:	chs
Date:		Sun Apr  4 17:17:31 UTC 1999

Modified Files:
	src/sys/kern: subr_pool.c
Log Message:
Undo the part of the last revision about pr_rmpage() referencing
a data structure after it was freed.  This wasn't actually a problem,
and the change caused the wrong pool_item_header to be freed
in the non-PR_PHINPAGE case.

That bug caused my 8MB i386 to crash within about 10 minutes; it'd often
crash while /etc/rc was staring up daemons.
