Kernel panics with OS X 18.2: A known issue

After reporting my kernel panic problems with OS X 10.8.2 via Bug Reporter (since they were not fixed during the seeding phase), I’ve just received an e-mail saying that my bug report is a “duplicate”, which is Bug Reporter’s way of telling me that they are aware of the issue. So that’s good news.

That does not tell us when the issue is going to be fixed, but presumably kernel panic-inducing problems have a fairly high priority. We’ll see.

In the meantime, I will continue to use my hack, which has been working reliably for five days straight now. And I’ll keep an eye on the contents of the System/Library/Extensions/ folder to see if they change again in the next update.
