since i migrated from 6.2-REL to 6.3-REL i got several
panics when copying much data from one volume to another.
because of the copy-job taking several hours, i don't
get a realistic chance to CATCH the stupid panic and
see what's going on (or at least get an idea of).
this is really frustrating me!

is there a way to avoid the auto-reboot?

is there a way to save the panic to disk?

btw, there's no swap partition i could use as dump device.
