Weird, I say, I'm not in luck with this it seems, so I'll just have to
live without it I guess.
Thanks for the info, though, I was at first worried I had bad RAM, but
it seemed to be diskactivity that made the system crash, and I had just
enabled softupdates so ...
I hope it gets better for the release, it's my own fault running
BTW, is this sort of bug something I'd rather use sendbug for? Is that
the preferred type of bugreport?
