That was caused by a Forth file being included and not understood
by the previous Forth-less loader.

I get this panic when untarring on my 128Mb notebook (and the 64Mb
B&W G3 :). Still investigating.
It's easy to reproduce on machines with more amounts of ram. Just
create a file larger than memory size, and then dd it to /dev/zero.
When running 'top', free memory gradually drops to zero, and when
the pager kicks in the panic happens.

Is it the same panic ?

One is the modem, the other one may not be connected.
There are third-party converters that bring out a standard serial
port (e.g. Griffin g4Port).
