Jan, see if you can get kernel core out of it. You may have to
set sysctl kern.sync_on_panic=0, but then ctl-alt-esc'ing into
the debugger (when the machine is in this locked up state) and
typing 'panic' <return> (probably <return> a second time) should
do it if you have the dumpdev set.

Looks like I've been fortunate enough to think this far ahead, ctrl-alt-esc worked. However, it isn't coring properly, it just says "syncing disks...", and that's about it.

Actually, that isn't quite true. The following is displayed (not sure if this'll help at ALL, but better too much information than too little (this is after performing the two steps you specified):

syncing disks...

The machine itself is utterly non-responding beyond this. I hope this output helps (I've doublechecked that I typed it in correctly, I'm hoping I haven't missed anything). I'm going to leave it running overnight, to see if it'll eventually dump core.
