I recently started using a -current kernel on my 1.5 system, and have
started seeing a weird problem. Every now and then the system panics with
a cred != NULL assertion error in nfs_socket.c, line 929.

This is with root mounted nfs, on a Beige G3. I even have the problem with
a kernel from yesterday's source.

I can repeat the problem by running the PostgreSQL regression suite. The
system dies towards the end of it.

Unfortunatly I can't say more as it seems the keyboard doesn't work when I
get dropped into ddb, so I can't get a back trace. I'll see if I can boot
using a serial console.

Take care,
