I should have said that I also stepped back in time several times, and
was still getting the panic with kernel from sources dated April 15th,
ruling out the major DRM upgrade in July.  I couldn't get any of the
screensavers that easily provoke the panic to run on a pre-April 15th
system, even after recompiling all ports.
