    I think I'm getting the same thing, but I don't have the magic-key
    compiled in. I'm going to hook up a VT510 to the serial port, in case
    this is just XFree86 crashing. For anyone collecting statistics:

    kernels 2.4.4-pre6 (?) and now 2.4.6-pre3
    plain Pentium MMX @ 200 MHz
    Intel motherboard -- see below
    stable since 1996, on a UPS, dust-free, and the fan works
    one lockup per day with desktop usage

    In case the serial console doesn't work, could someone post plans
    for a safe NMI board? (both ISA and PCI) The best I found:
    (for PCI you're supposed to assert SERR# on the clock -- how?)
