I had a similar problem with an 3.17, but it always happened at the same
point in the game.  Anyway, the only way I could get control of the
machine was to telnet in from another and reboot it. :(

I've since upgraded to 3.19, but have not yet gotten to the point in the
game where it crashed on me.
