If one of you can reproduce the panic, can you copy the stack trace in
panic message? I guess it wouldn't have written a crash dump, so you
may have to boot with the '-k' flag appended to the 'kernel' line in
GRUB, and the 'splashimage' line as well as 'console=graphics' removed
(needs both, or the console will still not be visible). That way the
system won't reboot immediately.

This should help us identify the bug.
