System: NetBSD
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386

Trying to debug a system lock-up, I tried to enter DDB using the
keyboard.  This caused an immediate panic and crash dump.  Examining
the dump with gdb shows:

I see that another user has reported a similar problem in

The machine in case is an old Compaq Deskpro EN.  It's now back in
production use, so I can't easily test patches.


Attempt to enter ddb on a Compaq Deskpro EN running NetBSD/i386.
