I've run Memtest on it for 11 hours and 30 minutes today.  No errors.
So we're looking good.

And I've had no crashes or other weird events either, so it's looking
good for a public apology to SuSE 10.0 for ever doubting it, as well.
But I'm going to give it a few more days yet.


Time to make my apologies.  SUSE Linux 10.0, how could I ever have
doubted you!

Thanks to all of you who put me back on the straight and narrow.

Did not see your original post so I'm not sure what was done, if anything, to correct this. When I see or hear about unexplained problems that just disappear and reappear I always suspect power. Are you on a UPS? There cheap.
It was RAM. I'd never have thought of that, but for the input from the list. I was pointed at Memtest. It came back with quite a list of errors, so I went back to the vendors with a transcript of the Memtest output, and they replaced the faulty RAM with no quibbles. I reserve the right to put that down to my charm and animal magnetism, though.

A good experience all round, in the end: especially since I now don't have to fight segmentation faults and program crashes in order to get any work done. So I'm now firmly back in the Linux-is-rock-solid class.
