FWIW, my G4 cube was running quite well for a long time, until I upgraded in 
October.  It started crashing occasionally (like once a month), but I've 
never seen "random core dumps" or "hanging."  Haven't looked into the causes 
of the crashes, because it resets back into the PROM and leaves no useful 
debugging info.  :-/
