I think it has to be something else.. this is the only core dump in the syslog  
and the server is temperature monitored. temperatures were all fine. I think 
if there were temperature problems the monitor would have logged it and there 
would be other symptoms.

I am doing a portupgrade right now in advance of upgrading from Freebsd 5.3 to 
5.4 . The upgrade will include kdelibs and wondering if the new version will 
fix it. 
Any more ideas?
