Same behavior here.

My machine also crashed precisely at 0:59:59 - french time - (screen
froze, KDE bar displaying this time).

My current kernel is:
Linux 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Mon Dec 15 18:15:07 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
This is an average 32 bits sempron 2600 machine.

I would be very interested to understand what's happened. I don't think
it's a coincidence, I've seen several other mention of such a crash
(with Debian) on the web today.
