Another *possibility* is that something was not seated well. When you
added/removed the RAM, you seated everything well. Also, based on my
experience, when you have little ram (64MB used to be *huge*) you must
have plenty of swap. On a machine that 64MB and 256MB swap, I would get
the failures *sometimes*, but not always. Since I took that machine to
96MB, not one failure of that type.
