Memory getting scribbled over looks more like a software
problem than a hardware problem.  (Somewhat dependign on
the pattern)

It's certainly not a usual problem (what OS version was it
running, what additional software, specficially kernel components,
and was it ever run with "set kmem_flags = 0xf")

It pains me to see unhappy customers; and you story is particularly
uncharacteristic as far as I can tell.

Expressed in this posting are my opinions.  They are in no way related
to opinions held by my employer, Sun Microsystems.
Statements on Sun products included here are not gospel and may
be fiction rather than truth.
