Interesting... is it ONLY that program, and otherwise, the computer is fairly zippy?

Think it's as zippy as a "late 2008 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo" would be expected to be under lots of text editing/compiling/testing random apps.
Take a look at the (open)rdar. The panic in question has to do with opening/closing ptys, not a general purpose program issue.
When I get a round tuit (and am ready to see panics happen) I'll write a pty stress test.

Hmm... ok... The reason I asked was that one time I had the same program-isolated panic. Then that evolved into MANY programs doing this, and eventually the OS quit working... It wasn't until the OS quit working that i was able to figure out that the logicboard was failing and throwing drive I/O errors.
In this scenario, however, that type of failure seems abit too early to diagnose. Like you said, try doing some stress testing and see what happens.

Wasn't able to reproduce it with manual stress testing (even though it happened 2 times while doing real work - go figure).
I did just replace the cooling fan. You saw this specific panic occur, the 'negative open count'?

Many different kinds of panics... at random.
