Well, this really looks like a hardware problem. I have various i386
systems running 1.6, all of them have been stable.
I'me even been pushing a system hard this week-end (to test a machine rebuild
from various pieces of hardware) running make -j20 or make -j40 (depending
on the amout of RAM) kernel builds, and a -j10.
I've tested various RAM config from 32M to 128M.
