:> Awesome! Can you do ktrace?
:I tried. All I got was an empty ktrace.out file.

    I will attempt to reproduce this one today.

    Try compiling DDB into the system (if it isn't already there) and
    see if you can CTL-ALT-ESC into a debugger prompt (from a console, not
    from X) when the lockup occurs.  If you can, type 'trace'.
