trn-and-Memory Concerns?

In your situation, I'd check the size of the swap partition and make 
sure it was equal to the amount of ram on my machine.  I'd also check 
the /tmp partition and find out how full it is after one of these 
failures.  It's possible you're out of virtual memory not physical 
memory.  I'd also check how full the directory tree is where trn stores 
my articles.  If I could find sighted assistance that knew what 
memtest86 was and how to interpret it, I'd have the computer tested with 
that too just to be sure none of my physical memory hadn't gone out or 
was about to die.
