Hello everybody!

I have some _very interesting_ news regarding this issue!
Here is the deal:

  1. I was able to *reproduce the error on a machine of a coworker!*

  2. I was able to rule out
      - HDD: It's reproducible from /dev/shm
      - Memory: Memory tests works fine

now the interesting part:

  3. Occurs on Linux kernels 3.7.10, 3.8.x, 3.9.11, 3.10.5
     _but not on:_ 3.6.11, 3.5.7 and 2.6.32

Both machines showing this problem are »Dell Latitude E6330« with an
»i5-3340M @ 2.70GHz« CPU. Mine running stock kernels, coworker using
plain Ubuntu 13.04.

Furthermore I need to stress, that we never had any issues with our
devices during daily _at all_.

So what to do best now?
