Multiple systems, and memtest has been run for 48 hours without fail. I had a long thread on this last summer. And yes, when it gets these weird exceptions, it often gets them several times in a row at the same point in the ' release'.

BTW, my systems fail with varying symptoms.  Most frequently is a

I hope it's not the case, but this does look a lot like hardware
problems (bad memory or overheating CPU), although I find odd that it
seems to often crash at the same point, if that's the case...
