    Good point... I don't know what is going on there. That box is running
    a newly-installed debian sarge, with it's default startup scripts. I
    have done nothing to that system besides kernel testing and v4l / dvb
    testing and development.

    The oops was showing up immediately before xorg opens with it's
    user-login box...

    In other words, the OOPS is the last thing to show on the screen in text
    mode, before the console switches into X, using debian sarge's default
    bootup process.

    I have no idea why gdb is running.... hmm... Anyhow, I'm away from that
    machine right now, and it is powered off, so I can't look directly at
    the startup scripts right now. Would you like me to send more info
    later on when I get home? If so, what would you like to see?
