That could be a hardware problem.

Start with:

1. uname -a
2. See if there are any files in /var/crash/

If you can recreate it, log in as root and do this:

sysctl -w kern.dump_on_panic=1

Then recreate the problem. This is supposed to write a crash dump to
/var/crash/ before restarting. After it restarts, check /var/crash
again and see if there is a dump in there. If so, send a note to the
list for your particular architecture, maybe or or whatever you are running.

Again, it's probably likely that you're hitting a bad spot in memory
or something like this. Or maybe it's video hardware related.
