I had the same (bell issued by vim); I got a dump, if anyone is interested.

The same unmodified i386 GENERIC kernel did a panic during
initialization by midi as well - but I could not get a dump out of
this; I could switch to serial console and keep the log or just take
the trace out of the screen, if that might be useful.  ATM I boot
disabling them both; the rest seems as usual.
