I've noticed lockups on a number of versions of m0n0wall (although not 
relating specifically to 1.2), and although i've not managed to 
completely tie it down, i think i've narrowed down the cause to when 
someone removes a console cable that has been connected for a long 
period of time on a Soekris or WRAP platform (mainly Soekris).  It 
appears to lock m0n0wall up almost the instant the console cable is 
removed, although this isn't very repeatable. eg it's fine doing so 
after a fresh reboot... it just seems to be when the cable has been 
connected (and probably not used) for quite a while.

I'm sorry i don't have more specific information at this time.
