Yes, the kernel was compiled at Sat Jun 6 17:59:50 JST 2009.
I did not check the source changes but I need watching how it works.
Yesterday's kernel can easily lock up, and ichwd+watchdogd can restart

No. I have never seen the debugger, Ctrl+Alt+Esc cannot break. And
because this box does not have serial port, debugging seems difficult.
