No, as I said. It's a strange kernel bug which only shows on these two machines 
which
have a custom-rolled kernel from A.EON which is a wild mish-mash of various 
patches
from Freescale and others that were never merged into Linux upstream, so the 
kernel
is anything but reliable.

The issue goes away when rebooting the machine though only to come back after 
some
weeks. I will reboot atlantis in a minute and once I find the time, I might 
build
a fresh kernel myself once I manage to collect all the patches necessary.
