Named is causing my server to Kernel panic?

I have two DNS servers, and my slave server has been crashing repeatedly 
about once a week. It's crashing hard and bringing down the *whole* box. 
It's a F10 box, running:

:rpm -q bind

Here is a shot from my cell phone of the kernel panic:

My first thought is that it was bad hardware, so we swapped the HDs out to 
another server. *Everything* was new except the HDs and the crashes still 
occurred. I'm not sure what my next step is, but having it continue to 
crash is no good! The box is up to date on all software and kernel patches. 
It runs fine while it's up, it just randomly crashes.
