you might have faulty memory. On my uVAX-II this was the case, as you
describe a problem identical to what i experienced. Changing a memory
board immediatley fixed the problem. From my reconstruction of what had
happened (I run Ultrix and 4.3BSD on that machine, so no ddb there :-)
it was when i tried to do things to that disk that a certain bad piece of
memory got touched, which then set the stage for the panic.
hope this helps,
