When trying to kill a netscape process on NetBSD/PowerPC, the kernel panics with the message:

Trap type 10f00 at 10f7b28c

Given a current kernel on a G4Ti with the linux emulation and netscape installed.  (MRG mentioned something to me about Altavec registers so this won't work on a G3.)

start netscape:
    netscape &
wait wait for netscape to appear:
kill netscape
    kill %1
