I too see the same panic maybe one out of five boots of my laptop (Core 
2 Duo). Most of the time it happens during KDE startup, but it has 
happened occasionally towards the end of running the rc startup 
scripts. This has been going on since I started running amd64-current 
as of about two months ago.

Sometimes the kernel manages to dump core (which doesn't appear to be 
usable) but most times it wedges solid.

I'll append a dmesg here next time I power-up the laptop.

Cheers, Steve
