: It's a 2x2.2GHz Xeon with 2GB of ECC memory.
Multiprocessor corruption under i386 - been around ~forever (well,
as long as we've had multiprocessor for i386 branch).
I've had it on PentiumII-233MHz, Pentium4-3000, C2D-E6850's.
Testing done using the stress test feature in mersenne.org program,
with number of programs as the number of processors.
Running it under MSWindows on the same systems work fine, however
MSWindows has processor affinity.
