 I figured out that the cause of this was playing music in XMMS from a 
 USB HDD. I'm sorry; this was a long time ago and I no longer have that 
 configuration on the machine with the problem. I  think that the 
 ``randomness'' of the crash was determined by when I would play a 
 Flash-based game with the Flash 6 plugin under mozilla which also 
 required sound (the game is to be found at 
 http://www.sikids.com/games/bmx/bmx.html, the ``password'' is 
 ``freebird''). In any case, after a certain amount of time playing that 
 game (which would not have sound as I was listening to music in XMMS), 
 the machine would halt with these errors.
