I get stuff like this on my J5000, only it locks up and/or HPMC's when it 
does it.  (Sometimes prints HPMC info to the LCD, sometimes not, but 
always locks up).

I try to keep up-to-date with the cvs kernels, and I try it on SMP every 
now and then, but I generally run this box under UP and it is very stable.  
I started having problems with this box when the latest 2.4.17-32-smp was 
released.  With the previous one, this box was stable under SMP.  (this 
was before I got the courage to build my own kernels on parisc).  Not sure 
what versions in cvs this corresponds to, but maybe some change between 
caused the problem.

Not sure if this is the same problem you are encountering, because Samba 
also tends to lock this box up, and if I leave it alone, it just crashes 
itself later...
