comment Linux Kernel Oops - source unknown
I think this is more likely to be hardware than an issue with memtest. Does your hardware vendor provide any diagnostic tools? Do you have the full BIOS post enabled? Also check the BIOS RAM settings to see if the timings are correct for the type of RAM you have installed.

comment Removing a process from launchd without restarting
I agree. Killing the entire launchd process is very heavy-handed. Although that worked in this particular situation, I don't think it should be put forward as THE solution.

I've been able to use launchctl from ssh on jobs that are running from the console, so I don't think the mach bs context matters.

Good point. You could try to run your kiosk application as if it was the Finder, maybe by making /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app a symlink to it.

Why don't you want Finder to run? Wouldn't it be better just to leave the machine at the login screen?
