The program was sawfish twice and xpdf once. The addresses were
different, but the backtraces were otherwise identical.

Notice that I am running the i586 kernel on a Via C3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
If it is interesting enough I can write a program that segfaults and
see if that causes the problem every time.

I have seen a few sudden kernel halts with the same two kernel
versions. No reaction to SysRq. I am not sure they are related.
