All my desktop -STABLE machines seem to be happy.
My laptop, not so much. I posted about some of it's issues a couple of
days ago and then re-cvsuped and cleaned out all the locations of
compiled kernel code and /usr/obj to make double sure I was running
with consistant and up to date code. Now I'm waiting to see if it
crashes again (usually takes a few days to panic).
I can switch from X to a vty without panicing the machine now, but
sometimes (particularly if Mozilla is running) switching to a text vty
will kill XF86;

I'll post more if I get another panic to work with ...
