Sorry, been busy with other things.

I've just had a look, and found this in a dmesg file:

[   16.739275] BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at
[   16.739304] IP: [<ffffffff8115351a>]
[   16.739329] PGD 0
[   16.739341] Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP

..followed by lots of other stuff, ending with :

[   16.741257] Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!

..although I'm positive that I didn't see that last line on the screen at
any stage.

Does that lot mean anything to anyone?
