Did it again.
This system is quite old, this issue is very new on a box that had been
rock solid stable for several years, no hardware changes in last few
months.

I'm going to de-dust the innards, start it cool - and run it through
memtest86
If it's bad memory, I buy new ram.
If it's not bad memory, I will try a new power supply.
If that doesn't fix it - I guess I find out what x86_64 is like :D
