Let me see if I understand this.  I am running VMWare 2.0.4 and
this morning I discovered that it dies with:

  VMware Workstation PANIC:

This is on a relatively current Woody system, and VMWare was
running fine last week.  Is this the same issue, and does that
leave me in the "sorry" category?

(I would like to believe not, since my VMWare sessions are
suspended, and to upgrade them to 3.x I would need to have them
running in 2.0 to turn them off properly).
