LOL.  Yes that's a fine word for this.

It's hard to tell.  Could be HW, glibc, kernel, compiler, or some other 
package.  You really need a debugger and intimate knowledge of the code 
to tell.

I can relate.  I went to bed at 10PM local and woke up at 2AM.  Tossed 
about an hour and decided to work a bit.  Went back to bed at 7AM and 
just got up again at abot 1030AM.  Fortunately, that's a bit extreme. 
I'm usually a bit more 'normal'.

No problem.
