looks like there's a crash bug in the most recent kernel. Most Probably related to NFS.

rolling back to 3.12.62-60.64.8-default fixed the problem, users are grumpy now though.

So if you use NFS be aware.

Unfortunately I don't know if SuSE is already aware of this bug - I couldn't find its bugzilla and SRs are scarce...
