Kernel Panic on loading iChat

Hi! So i’ve installed openfire to use MSN Messenger from within iChat, and it worked fine for a couple months, and then suddenly now, whenever I start up iChat with OpenFire enabled from System Preferences, I get an immediate kernel panic and have to restart my computer. If I disable OF before loading iChat I get no errors, and if I enable OF after starting iChat everything works perfectly, even if I close iChat and restart it (in other words, it works until the next time I restart my computer). Anybody else having this issue? I haven’t updated OF since I installed it a few months ago, so I’m gonna do that now, I was just wondering if anyone has had the same issue (couldn’t find anything in the forums about it). I’ll post my findings.

Oh, and I believe the problems started after installing or updating Leopard…

I, uh… wow. Kernel panics? Post your panic log and I’ll have a look.

Hey! Thanks for having a look at this… I think this is the kernal panic log… I grabbed it from Console from PanicReporter…
