Hmmm.. was attempting to process 760 photos from a model shoot today. left the room so it could grind away...came back in about 10 minutes to see the KP screen. Rebooted and log says its been 96181476 seconds since my last KP. That's just over 3 years. Remember when you would get KPs regularly?
Am I to gather that BSD is bad (blue screen of death?) and the Suitcase Fusion caused the KP?

Unzip memtest.zip and copy the memtest binary to the top level of your HD. To run it boot to Single User mode, Command-S at startup, then type /memtest*all*4*-L. * = space. /memtest invokes the app, all tells it to test all available RAM, 4 tells it 4 passes, -L puts a log on the top level of the HD.
It takes quite a while to run all depending on how much RAM you have, and since it's in SU mode the fans may all run full blast. It should end up with no errors. If it say errors were found when it's done that's not good. If it locks the machine up it's not a good thing either.
To cancel the test if needed type Control-C. When the test is done, to reboot type reboot and hit Return.
If it tests OK with the above voodoo, when booted normally, double click the memtest binary, it will launch Terminal and run memtest. In SU mode the RAM caches in the processor are disabled, but are enabled when booted normally. If it tests good in SU mode, but fails booted normally, a processor is more than likely bad.
