Yeah but...

It is doing the exact same thing again today.  Both server and clients
rebooted due to power outage since the last time.  Odds of cosmic rays
hitting the exact same bits in RAM to cause the exact same issue a week
apart are poor enough that I think this is a bug.

Or bad ram.

All clients or just one?

Anyone have any ideas what might be causing it?
