Description of problem:
Kernel oops while trying to print from within xpdf.

Had killed xpdf with xkill several times while trying to print before
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not, so far.
There might have been multiple processes writing to a print
file from "xkilled" xpdfs at the same time.
Very shortly after the oops, the system crashed without writing
to disk, and rebooted itself.

I don't think so Michael:
> Oops: 0002
> Kernel 2.4.9-34
> CPU: 0
Doh, I forgot that there was a new kernel installed in the meantime.
Sorry, was clearly not paying sufficient attention. I've closed this
WORKSFORME, can always reopen...
