Could you maybe check what parameters you have enabled on your disk via
hdparm?  I have had a few hard freezes, and I think they are related to a
small bug in either multiword dma or irq masking.  If I have those options
enabled, I occasionally get a machine freeze, caused by xmms (once by
slocate via cron)...(that's what the xmon debugger says anyways)

Shouldn't people be arrested and persecuted for engaging in their
