Before I report this to the misc@ or bugs@, I would like to exclude the following potential hardware failure.

I have ran Memtest86 (both v1.65 from the BIOS, and v4.20 through "boot memtest"). In these tests test 5 [Block move, 64 moves] gives many errors, as does test 7 from v4.20. I have read on several internet fora that test 5 would create a lot of heat, rendering this test not trustworthy.

Any ideas about this? My first guess is bad memory, and I should try to exclude or confirm this first.
