No.. but I think I've found the cause..:

# ifconfig de0 198.168.10
fatal kernel trap:

    trap entry = 0x2 (memory management fault)
    a0         = 0x0
    a1         = 0x1
    a2         = 0xffffffffffffffff
    pc         = 0x0
    ra         = 0xfffffc000040b18c
    curproc    = 0x0

panic: trap
syncing disks... .done

dump to dev 601 not possible

The ifconfig didn't cause it.. it caught me mid-typing.

I've tried about 10 times.. this was the only time it didn't just wedge up.
