Is there any way to force the system into the kernel debugger?

I'm often finding that I'd like to debug some other thread then the one
that I have access to: typically something is goofy in a cocoa thread
but I don't have a listener there - can I drop into the kernel debugger
and look at things in the other threads? If I can and do, will I be able
to resume execution when I'm done?
