This didn't happen with RELENG_6. For me it only paniced once because I
forgot to unmount usb drive before I removed it.
Little while ago I upgraded to RELENG_7. The problem appeared few times
after that.

And this has not happened with Linux.

If I switch from X to console and back I get some jerkiness/momentary
freezing of system. This might be related to synaptics touchpad or
radeon xpress 200m.
And I think these are related to crashes too.

It takes a moment before X comes back after hitting alt-F9. First the
screen is bit corrupted and only then it gets back properly. During this
corrupt screen phase most of the stuff freeze for a moment. Few media
players continue to play music uninterrupted (ex. audacious) but most of
them always freeze for awhile (ex. mplayer)

Moving touchpad before X has 'resumed' properly sometimes causes this
freezing to last more than 5 secs. The second of the coredumps happened
just few seconds after this kind of freezing and switching back to

Is there anything I can do to help tracking reason for these panics?
