There is a chance it's related to kern/12433. A bug crept in
lately to sys/compat/linux/common/linux_exec.c:linux_e_proc_fork() - 
a not-yet-setup vmspace may be used for computation. I'm going to
look at that today.
Backing off sys/compat/linux/common/linux_exec.c to rev. 1.45
and sys/compat/linux/common/linux_misc.c to rev. 1.83 might also
fix the problem.
