comment Optimize graphics performance with (2) attached displays
I upgraded to OS X 10.7.5 and now this tip does not work, even though it did before in 10.7.4. Bug or feature? It would be interesting to know if 10.8 is any different in this regard.

I should also add that this time the crash was also network oriented such as that all connections (via wifi) died quite suddenly and all network apps including browser windows hung. The UserEventAgent crash may be directly unrelated to that part but it's interesting it timed with the crash. I also wanted to rule out bad RAM and tested my 4GB memory chip and nothing turned up. This error is very elusive unfortunately.

Today and yesterday I had 2 new crashes occuring in the same fashion as before after weeks of a working machine. No disks were mounted. This time there was a crash report "UserEventAgent_2013-01-13-061111_[DiskName].crash" made at the time of the crashes. You can see the complete crash log of the latest of them at this paste site (pastebin was down): sebsauvage.net/paste/?631ea4b944669698#zLIxBZUDmwruED/… Mainly it involves the /usr/libexec/UserEventAgent process and Exception Type is "EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)".

I've now started up my other machine (A G5 on 10.5.8) in firewire target mode instead. Time will tell if this approach works. I've done weeks without crashes before and I know of no fireproof to provoke this massive hang of processes. I'm pretty sure simply yanking the cord won't be enough. If this stop the crashes, afp was involved somehow. If so the question remains, why did the external resources go inaccessible in the first place?
