Yes. Matt, please slow down and quit panicing for just a second here
- you haven't even told us what processor these are on let alone what the
hardware manufacturer is.  It's like your calling to schedule a doctors
appointment and you aren't even telling them if the patient is
a man, woman, child, or for that matter, family dog!

The vast majority of panics are hardware-related.  It is rare nowadays
for a usermode program to make the system panic.  In particular you said
the problem happens more under load.  That really points even more to a
hardware problem - bad CPU cache ram, bad ram, scsi termination, that
sort of thing.
