My VAXstation 3100/m30 has these crashes since about half a year. I
opened it up and dug around the inside at this time so I thought,
maybe I've broken something.
But recently I've installed 1.5 from CD and there it doesn't crash.
The machine boots into single user mode without problem. I also can
mount paritions r/w and modify files on them.
The crash happens when fsck starts:
# fsck /dev/sd0d
panic: lockmgr: no context
syncing disks... Trap: type 2, code 0, pc 80000717, psl 4140000
dumping to dev 20,1 offset 100520
