one thing.. have u tried reporduce this on a DIFFERENT piece of hardware? and
what about a different distribution? (you seem to like installing different
distros) ? your bug is entirely weird. it makes very little sense - beyond ther
ebeing memory corruption. now i cannot see HOw it manages to currupt there -
thats the thing. not in the c code. it may - its theoretically possible i have
missed something. but... what about a different distribution and different
piece of hardware (another machine)? - wild though it may be - i might suspect
your hardware (memory or cpu - maybe overclokcing?)?????? it's a stab in the
dark - but i'm clutching at straws now.
