At least on my /260, whenever I kick or move the machine I start getting
those ECC errors.  Generally I can fix it by pulling all of the memory
modules out, dusting off (compressed air works well) the contacts on the
motherboard and the modules, then firmly re-inserting them.  This
usually works wonders on these machines!

The 1.5Alpha2 release's kernel reports a module number along with the
ECC message.  I'm not sure if it starts counting from zero or one,
however. :)
