 This is my PM partition, which I've been keeping up to date with "pkgman
 update" for a couple weeks now.

 It panics (after the last icon, as the desktop appears) every time I try
 to boot up, so quite a serious condition.

 If that matters, it first occured after rebooting from a session on the
 other (r 45824) partition where I was running tests with the cdda driver
 re. its suspected memory-corruption/use-after-delete bug... Speculation:
 maybe the cdda driver corrupted an area of memory that is "shared" between
 reboots? Still, the BFS code seemingly has a vulnerability that should be

 I'll keep that PM partition as-is until > next week in case I am advised
 to run diagnosing KDL commands ..etc, then I'll try to take corrective
 actions from the other partition, 'remotely' removing the offending
 syslog.old file and so on so I can get that PM partition back in play.
