Please get a crashdump. I thinks it's described in the
handbook, how to do it. In short:

- set dumpdev in rc.conf, use your swap-partition
- ensure you have at least as much space in /var as your swap
- build a kernel with debugging symbols (makeoptions    DEBUG=-g)
- boot the new kernel
- panic the box
- a crashdump should be written to the dump-device
- reboot
- savecore will salvage the dump from swap to /var/crash/vmcore.x
(x beeing a number)
- once done run
  gdb -k /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MACHINE/kernel.debug /var/crash/vmcore.x

  (you cannot use /kernel since it is stripped from the symbols)
- in gdb use the 'bt' command to get a stack trace
- post this information or use send-pr to file a problem report
