    First one since I bought it roughly a year ago. I had just run Maintenance in Xupport, restarted, and was going through the other tabs in Xupport when it happened.

    I feel..violated. :eek:

    Congratulations... I think. :p

    Have you used Maintenance since? Does it all work normally again? Sometimes machines just panic randomly (but not often, as you've noticed) but there's no associated long term problem. Hopefully this is the case for you. :)

    Hey, one in a year is a pretty good record. If you start having more problems, let us know and we'll try and help you figure out what the problem is.

    This may sound silly, because it is. Is there a way to force a kernel panic? I think it would be fun.

    Put cheap RAM in your machine. You'll get 'em fairly frequently. But there is probably some program with a bug that'll cause it, but none that I know of off the top of my head.

    I used to use OnyX, I just recently removed it. I also use MacJanitor.

    Haven't noticed any difference in results from the three.

    Don't tempt fate.
    I used to get them about once a month, seemingly at random, but I haven't had one for about nine months now. Something's going right, but I have no idea what.:)

    i was once installing this iscroll2 driver using the command line, and part of the installation process required me to unload the current trackpad driver before installing the new one. the manual clearly said that you cant touch the trackpad while the driver is unloaded but i was like i wonder what would happen if i did. and there it was a kernel panic.

    i think it is some kind of sudo command in the terminal that you will have to type to get it working (or not working in this case)
