SubjectRe: Fwd: Fwd: laptop / computer hardlocks during execution of 32bit applications(binaries) on 64bit system (Gentoo)

this time my kernel isn't tainted either (comm: thunderbird-bin Not
tainted; http://kerneloftruth.neucode.org/other/crash_ia32_64/not_tainted/moto_0041.jpg)
but still hardlocks:

yes

no, I get err=-16
(watchdog is broken: cat /proc/interrupts | grep NMI reveals nothing)

yes, despite broken watchdog

steps:
1) startx
2) change to tty2, log in; DISPLAY:=0 thunderbird-bin
3) wait until it hardlocks

known apps to trigger that locking:
- realplayer
- thunderbird-bin (2.0.0.9)
- mozilla-firefox-bin (2.0.0.11)
(all included in portage-tree)

apps not triggering:
- skype (not tested that thoroughly (yet))
- ...

only backtrace so far (once):

I'll tar the whole kernel-directory & modules so that you'll be able
to reproduce it more easily (if wanted), is there a place where I
could upload it (it weighs around 300-400 MBs so that'll take some
time ;) )
I got work to do so that'll be all for now, I hope you'll be able to
find the culprit soon ...
