Not reproducible. We've had one laptop freeze completely perhaps every 
second session, but never the same laptop so serial consoles aren't 
practical. Is it possible to tell if the kernel panicked? Could the 
kernel hand control (assuming enough of the kernel is still working) 
back to the open firmware for diagnosis?
