Yes, as I was reading the list, all I could think was that it was a
memory problem that you were experiencing. I was running down the same
path a while back, but my symptoms were different than yours. Crucial
memory is definately low-grade in my books unfortunately, on two other
occasions I've had two servers experience the same sort of memory
problems. It was fun sending back over 60 gigs of memory for a refund.
We run OCZ and Kingston now.
Anyway, it's great to see you have it figured out.
