NetBSD panics when it runs out of kernel VM, and since he had it lock
up, then that wouldn't be it. (I've gotten that panic myself before
recent Softdep improvements) Martin -- I take it that you can't break in
to the debugger? Also, even if the OS thinks your disk is clean, I'd
suggest booting in single user mode and forcing a fsck "-f" on all your
partitions. I've occasionally seen this happen.
