What does this mean? It happens quite a lot. It dumps you into the debugger,
which displays this message:

Stopped at              _Debugger+0x6: _Debugger+$7ffffffff:    unlk    a6

Everything is usually frozen up after that. Sometimes if I hurry I can just
type "continue" at the debug prompt, it tries unsuccessfully to sync and then
reboots. fsck is always bad on the first pass on going back to MacBSD

It almost always happens when I log out of con1 (is that like, something
you're not supposed to do?). So I learned pretty quickly not to do that --
just login to con1 as root, use the other virtual consoles to do stuff, then
go back to con1 to reboot. But I get it at many other seemingly random
times, except it does seem to happen more under sh or bash than under csh
(or when something else is executing sh)

I am using an SE/30, 8M ram, 16M swap. My arm's getting tired from reaching
for the reset switch!
