I have a machine with 20MB of memory which consistently panics when running
"portsdb -Uu". So far I haven't captured one with a matching debug kernel,
a situation which I've now corrected. One thing of note is that so far all
the vmcores have been exactly the same size (a number which I also forget at
present). Now that I've gotten the machine setup with a debug kernel and
matching source I'm going to trigger a few panics and post results here. That
will take a while (~5 hours per panic; it's a slow machine).
