    So my wife was at work today with her Powerbook G4 17", and was just surfing the web when all kinds of crazy code splashed across her screen. See the attached image. I'm assuming this was some sort of kernel panic or something? I've never seen it happen before? Any ideas?

    It's like a kernel panic with verbose mode on some how.
    "panic: we are hanging in here..." seems wierd...

    I've seen it a couple of times on G4s. Not sure what causes it.

    I saw this on my Cube once. The problem was bad RAM. I suspect that the fault was so low-level that it could not be trapped by the routine that normally invokes the restart instruction dialog box. BTW, the last line is, "we are hanging here."
