System: NetBSD i386 5.99.55 (sources from 2011-09-02 14:00 UTC)
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
The system crashes frequently (more than once per day).  I am usually
not able to get any debug information, because after a crash pressing
alt-control-F1 does not switch the display from graphics to text mode.
The most recent crash was while I was using a text console, so I was
able to get the following information.  (This is transcribed from blurry
photos, and it's likely that there's confusion between the digits
0 and 8.)

The crash happened as I was attempting to save a file from the
"vim" editor (installed from pkgsrc).  The file system is
ffs+wapbl on cgd.  The file system also happens to be the
backing layer for a read-only nullfs mount, and it's possible that
a process was attempting to access the same file through the
read-only nullfs mount at the same time as the editor was
attempting to save the file to the writabe backing layer.
