Thanks Jeff - worked it out.
It was a combination of
* Missing in.telnetd - didnt have telnet server installed on the HOST.
* devfs - the image I was booting from was a non devfs image - so the
getty's were referring to devices that the guest devfs didnt map back to the
old (traditional) path (not sure why, but didnt look into it)...
It is strange though - I've managed to panic the guest very easily - just be
telneting to the console ports - and disconnecting. After about 4 concurrent
sessions and disconnections - its seems to panic :-(

This needs fixing. Can you tell me exactly how to do this?

I can't make this happen. Can you see if you can get a recent UML to crash?
