1) Please, first and foremost, upgrade your sources. Random problems
are always popping up in -current, and February 14ths would be old
enough that it would be hard for anyone to remember what might have
been happening on the particular day you got your sources.
2) Do some thorough hardware self-tests on your machine.
If doing 1) and 2) cures things, good -- otherwise, please come back
with specific error information.
