XEmacs causing kernel panic

I loaded up XEmacs from the http://www.osxgnu.org site and gave it a spin. After starting up the application, everything appears to be working properly. I can open files, Give emacs commands, open new buffers, split buffers, even more the window around. But once I give XEmacs a mouse event, I get a kernel panic!

Is this a known issue? If so, is there a workaround for the time being or is there an alternate compile somewhere that doesn't cause this issue. I'll file this off with the Darwin developers in a bug report (since Darwin is so rudely panic'ing), but I am curious as to the details of why it may be happening.

After talking with some friends, it appears this may only be an issue with the smp boxes (I have a dual g4 500). I am running XFree86 1.0.a3 and OS X 10.1's stock darwin build. Is there a workaround in progress?

FYI for you other Emacs'ers, the work on an Aqua version of emacs is going on here http://emacs-on-aqua.sourceforge.net/ and here http://www.porkrind.org/emacs/

I'm interested in other emacs (not xemacs) work going on out there if anyone knows of other links.

Cheers!
