(In reply to comment #18)
Here is some more evidence that XFS is in play. When I had trouble with the
machine I dumped (dd) the partition containing all data onto an external
drive.
Now when I try to restore the data in some directories I get read errors (not
unexpected). When those read errors occur I get the following trace in the
kernel log.

Apr 19 12:05:14 triumph kernel: [ 4132.476952] XFS internal error
XFS_WANT_CORRUPTED_GOTO at line 4653 of file
/usr/src/packages/BUILD/kernel-desktop-2.6.31.12/linux-2.6.31/fs/xfs/xfs_bmap.c.
XFS driver complains that the filesystem is corrupted (extent tree block
pointers are bogus). Given that in the tainted kernel something is scribbling
over your memory, it could be caused by that.

So could you just install openSUSE 11.2 anew on the problematic desktop and
avoid installing any proprietary video card driver - maybe installing a system
without X Windows would be the best and see whether the corruption still
happens?
