[Haifux] Kernel oops, so what?

Thanks, but it looks like I wasn't clear about it: My issue is not to 
solve the specific problem. The question is that if I should bother, or 
just wait.

In ancient times, an oops meant I had no choice. The computer was dead. 
But judging by how the interface communicates with me (something like 
"file a report, we'll handle this") I wonder if an oops has joined the 
family of just another software crash.
