Entourage Kernel Panic?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have a Dual 1Ghz G4 (mirrored doors) which has been fairly prone to it's share of Kernel Panics. I have run Disk Warrior and it cleans the drive and works fairly stable for a day or three, then the panic may pop up again after a few days. The only thing that I notice after the panics is that there is almost always a message in the console log specifying Microsoft Entourage. I run that program 24/7, and let it check for messages automatically. A lot of times, the crash comes overnight, while the screen saver is running (which could also be a problem, but I just use the standard system options to run it). Here is a message from earlier today in the console:

## Component Manager: attempting to find symbols in a component alias of type (regR/carP/x!bt)

Sep 14 15:39:58 localhost /Applications/Microsoft Office X/Microsoft Entourage: *** Warning: Line option kATSLineIsDisplayOnly has been deprecated. ***

2003-09-14 15:40:16.646 loginwindow[343] Could not find image named `bang'.

Does anybody have any experience with this type of message or knowledge of Entourage being a culprit? What the heck is "an image named 'bang'?" (see last line above). Thanks in advance for feedback and tips.

    Just thought I'd give an update to my panic problems. May be helpful to someone with a similar situation.

    As stated above, the panics on my G4 were very unpredictable, and could not be replicated by any specific function by myself. I could go maybe a couple days at best at a time without one, then have a couple in one day. The only thing I noticed was Entourage was up, with auto send/recieve on. Disk Utilities and Diskwarrior would find/fix problems, but would never get rid of the panics.

    Through my research online, I found that it could be a keychain issue. The forum I found listed "Apple Keychain First Aid" as a fix.


    I ran this program on Wednesday of last week. My computer has been running now 24/7 with no panics (KNOCK ON WOOD)! Since I've always used Entourage since I bought the comp in March, and it is so nice to have a bug-free computer.

    Hopefully I didn't jinx myself by writing this. Hope it helps someone, though.
