This trace is actually useful. I would file a bugreport for this one, since the vm isn't for everyone (not for me for sure).
It craps out on exit(), which is very weird and would point to faulty memory, but one of the devs familiar with the vm should have a look at it.

Good to hear it may be a useful dump at last. I have added it to my original problem report. Now let's hope for some developer to take notice :)

Just a last update.

On the mailing list someone replied saying he had the same issues I had; perfect scores in memtest86+ but still kernel panics with high quality memory and a high quality main board. Somehow the memory and main board were not happy working together. Replacing the memory fixed his issues.

I have switched the ram from the server with some ram from my desktop and the server has not crashed since. It has been over two weeks now and I am fairly positive the problem is resolved. Thanks all who helped out!

Just out of interest, which motherboard and what brand memory?

(It might help someone in future to avoid the issue.)
