If you mean the "-266950656" -- I have just learned from Bill Studenmund
that printlockedvnodes() returns void; no use to print a return value like
I did. I.e., the "-266950656" is _not_ the output of the function.

I commented out the panic(), btw., and the message comes up exactly once
during the boot of the client; no problems afterwards, afaics.
