Yes...  I've had periods where the compiler drops cores all over the 
place, and other periods where things work fine.  It's on a P4-1.7Ghz 
and has behaved like this since about last August.

The only variable is the kernel - some kernels work and some don't.  
I've spent many 10s of hours trying to track it down, and I still 
have no idea what causes it - except that some kernels ``just work'' 
and some don't.

Maybe it depends on the humidity in the room when a kernel is built 
or something - and I'm only half joking here !

FWIW ru, /boot/kernel/kernel seems ok now.  /boot/kernel.sig/kernel
