I'm using SHR as well and I noticed this same (or similar) error a day
or two ago.  It just so happened that I was at that time watching the
logs with logread, and when it happened the system froze, the screen
went black and I had to take the battery out to revive it.  It's
possible that those two events were unrelated.  Did you notice any
problem when you saw that message, or did it seem to be benign?
