Yes, it really does look like it. Gosh.

Ok, Adam's workaround can best be explained by:

"edit /Library/StartupItems/Tor/Tor and place "export EVENT_NOKQUEUE=1"
just before the setting of TORLOC."

Please give this a go and let us know if you can (or can't) trigger any
more kernel panics. If this one works, then I suppose we'll just find a
way to disable kqueue on OS X because they've gotten it wrong on every
single version. :}
