Yes, I'm still seeing this.  This seems t be related to bad an driver
support for the Cisco 350MPI card in general.  I'm running an older firmware
which seems to be unstable.  The WindowsXP driver sometimes gets locked up
too.  I can't upgrade to a newer firmware because the an driver support
isn't there.  I tried the remote display session but don't seem to get any
debugging messages (or anything at all) when the system locks up.  It must
be a pretty hard crash.
