ok, i'll first try to trigger it again.

it's a bzImage kernel with fixed order of eth0 and eth1 detection. What
i did was to twiddle the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth*
configs to address a network-does-not-show-up bug that .24 introduced.
The crash logs contain this:

VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 396k freed
Write protecting the kernel read-only data: 2056k
udev: renamed network interface eth1 to eth0
udev: renamed network interface eth0_rename to eth1
eth0: link down
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
EXT3 FS on sda6, internal journal
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds

followed by the crash shortly afterwards (but not immediately). With the
non-crashing kernel i dont get those "renamed network interface"

network interface renaming has been a historic source of pain for me so
i frequently have to 'twiddle' the networking config to make it work
again on new kernels. Perhaps because i'm using bzImage kernels.
User-space is Fedora 8, so fairly recent.
