    Today unexpectedly my iMac dispalyed a grey screen asking for restart. A few seconds before this screen appeared I was experiencing problems using the system so I had checked Activity Monitor. It showed some deamon by name screenreaderd as Non Responding.

    The crash log is
    Wed May 20 11:16:52 2009
    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x00192FD4): "pmap_flush_tlbs() timeout: " "cpu 1 failing to respond to interrupts, pmap=0x536500 cpus_to_signal=2"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1228.5.20/osfmk/i386/pmap.c:4570

    That's not just a crash log, it's a panic log, which results from something unexpected and unrecoverable happening in the kernel. Without deep knowledge of the kernel, it's very difficult to interpret these logs.
