Second instance of an odd crash in my iMac (2008, C2D, 6GB RAM, ML) where the whole GUI freezes, including the clock but not the mouse pointer which still responds. Yeah, if you were going to suggest bad memory that's what I thought the first time (and with the other wake-from-sleep crashes that turned out to be a well documented something else) but I can ssh into the machine, can mount file shares from another mac and copy and move things around so I don't think it's bad memory as it is not a complete and 'proper' freeze. Any ideas?
