Time Machine causing panics

I have this new issue that started today, where when I leave my MBP for a few minutes, when I come back the screen is off and all the keys are unresponsive. There is nothing I can do but just hit the power button and manually restart the computer. When it restarts, the crash log says this:

it seems like time machine is the culprit. Every time my computer tries to back it it gets a kernel panic. If anyone has any info it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Edit: Doing a disk repair on my time machine backup disk image. Ill post the results when its done.

Edit 2: After repairing the Time Machine disk image with disk utility (which took around two and a half hours, I have now idea how, but the disk image got REALLY corrupt. Every possible error was there, it basically had to be completely rebuilt) my Time Machine is up and running just fine again. (Now I just have to figure out how it got so corrupt and *** it doesn't happen again)

In short, problem solved :D
