ok, I made two changes on sunday that are potentially related to this,
first to the pool code, then to the sa context-switch code.
the times of these two changes were

Date:           Sun Oct  2 17:29:32 UTC 2005
Date:           Sun Oct  2 17:51:27 UTC 2005

would someone who is seeing this problem try a kernel from right after
the second change, then a kernel in between the two changes,
and finally one from right before the first change and see if
the crashes go away with any of these steps?

I looked at both of these changes again and I still don't see a problem
with either of them.
