"Me too" - the trouble is, I don't see how to find a clue as to what is going
on - I had a DIAGNOSTIC/DEBUG kernel, everything was frozen, the screen was
off in powersave - I couldn't read anything from the screen / no network
connectivity (once it did respond to pings), and no corefile on reboot. no
hints in log files. It's fairly reproducible: build world with a lfs /usr/obj.
