System: NetBSD 4.99.44 NetBSD 4.99.44 (WEBKEKS) #0: Wed Dec 26 23:52:39 CET 2007 i386

	When trying to systrace a program, the kernel crashes. This renders
	NetBSD 5 unusable in an environment where security matters.
	See for a backtrace.
	Tested with kernel checkouts from:
	* 2007-11-24
	* 2007-12-24
	* 2007-12-26
	All give exactly the same backtrace.
	Just run a program with systrace, for example systrace ls.
	It seems the lock against itself has to be fixed.
