I can only guess that you are referring to the wirecount bug.
That topic has nothing to do with this one.
During my builds a few weeks ago, I no longer get wirecount panics but 
it's been replaced by a much less frequent "page not busy.4" panic:


i386 is much more usable under load now, but there's still a bug or two 
loose in there.
