[conspire] Kernel failure

Computer running Debian.  Installed in September.

On several occasions a pop-up window says I had a kernel failure and asks if I want to share the details with the Debian developers.  When the most recent one occurred, the only application running was Open Office.

1) Should I be concerned?
2) Is it advisable or not to share it with the developers?

Here is a copy of the "details"
