I'm still learning my way around the debugger - this is that 'production'
machine set up with a serial console and I only drape the cable across the room
when it acts up.  The 'trap below' was from an intentional show command, pardon
any ambiguity.

What's the right way to retrieve the actual panic string after you've entered
ddb?  Or is there none?  [The msgbuf didn't seem to have it.]

Yup, set up properly now.
