No, I don't think it was a backport. I've been having this issue for
quite a few months. Definitely before 0.25 was released. I upgraded
from 0.24 to trunk earlier this year (and then 0.25-fixes when it was
released). But I can't pinpoint when the problem started in relation
to when I upgraded. The first couple lockups I passed it off as a
fluke error, and then for months now I've been thinking it was a
hardware error. Tried running memtest for 24 hours a few times,
swapping hardware, etc, but that was all a dead end. A few days ago
was the first time I witnessed it in progress and got a chance to see
what was going on.

Ah, good idea. I definitely didn't do that when I built it today, and
I'm pretty sure I didn't do it last time I upgraded either, so that's
a very possible candidate. I'll do that and rebuild tonight, then
restart my tests.
