crashdumps not working

I played around with the kernel debug options a little and found peculiar
- With just options KDB (and no debugger backend specified), a panic will just
cause some output scroll very fast on the console - perhaps kdb is trying to
enter a nonexisting debugger backend and loops?
- With options KDB, KDB_UNATTENDED and DDB, a panic _does_ trigger DDB,
contrary to what the description of KDB_UNATTENDED says.
It seems to me 5.3's debugging facilities are somewhat in disarray...
