THe "great lot of numbers" is the stack data and reason of the crash.
By crash, you mean that the box has to be rebooted?
or just the application dies?

This sounds like a kernel bug and follows really only need to go
to parisc-linux mailing list.

I'd like to at least see the "kernel panic" reason, GR02 and IOAQ values.
Unless you are using serial console, this has to be copied by hand.

Can you pull a 2.4.17 parisc kernel from ftp.parisc-linux.org/kernels?
I'm not too excited about debugging the slightly older versions
since it's harder to retrieve the source from CVS.

That's a known problem that can be safely ignored for now.
