Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

As it is now, the report is next to be useless...

How does the machine locks up ?

Does it respond to pings?
Does it respond to keystrokes?
Is it still possible to loggle the keyboard leds like shift-lock?

In case your kernel has "CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ=y" in /proc/config.gz
press ALT-'Print Screen'-t and try to get the output to me and/or
the list. 
[ Nb. It might be necessary to do "echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq"
  first. ]
