Rod, Eddie: after going to 10.3.9 are the problems gone?

Hmmm. I've been trying to track down a regular kernel panic that occurs when I leave Tor running for several hours. My hardware passes the tests on the Apple diagnostic CD, and Tor doesn't use more than 5% cpu, so it's not a heat issue. I had dismissed Tor as the source of the problem out of hand because I couldn't imagine how it could cause a kernel panic.
I can't remember if it started when I went to 1.0.2rc or .3rc, but it wasn't a problem with 0.9.7. I'll start digging in to it this week. I'm pretty swamped at the moment, but I'll contribute what I can. Oh, this is OS 10.3.9.

It sits there fine 99% of the time, but when I start-up Tor again, I get a kernel panic. I've had almost *precisely* the same experience as Eddie (right down to shutting down Tor for a week, then starting it up again and seeing a crash).
Well several reports suggests that it's probably *not* hardware related. It could be a race condition deep in OS X which gets tickled after enough load (which Tor would provide).
So, other than making sure you have all the latest patches from Apple, there's probably not a lot to be done I'm afraid. I guess we keep an eye out for similar reports from other people and try to find the intersection.
