well it crashed again,
actually this time it was different.
video was "working" (I could see the desktop on the console)
however keyboard, mouse, etc non-functional. even ctl-alt-del

I setup a bunch of cronjobs in and around the crash time (7:29am EST)
this is the last log entry before reboot:

Feb 23 07:28:01 MYSERVER /usr/sbin/cron[8454]: (root) CMD (/usr/local/copylogs
/dev/null)

this cronjob copies /var/log/messages to /tmp

unfortunately that log is only a copy of that message.
the kernel BUG message isn't displayed this time.

from /var/log/messages:

Feb 23 07:14:12 MYSERVER rsyslogd: -- MARK --
Feb 23 07:15:01 MYSERVER /usr/sbin/cron[8428]: (root) CMD (/bin/ping -c 32
199.128.1.9 > /dev/null)
Feb 23 07:28:01 MYSERVER /usr/sbin/cron[8454]: (root) CMD (/usr/local/copylogs
/dev/null)

unfortunately /var/crash is empty. :(

i re-enabled kdump after the reboot.

interestingly (perhaps) there is a cronjob run at 7:29am every day.
its a bash shell that runs an expect script that ftp's a file to another
server.
a single file. and that's all it does.

i'll disable that cronjob and see what happens tomorrow at 7:29am
