Duh! You are so right. Since the reboot no messages at all.
Does this possibly explain the crash at all? Was the crash bound to happen if I did not reboot after installing the kernel patch?

Thanks again - Richard

You didn't get those messages before the update, right?
And am I right in thinking you haven't gotten them after your reboot?
I'm guessing you never rebooted your system after applying that kernel patch
