It does have ECC, as does the old machine. Bad RAM was my first thought,
too, but surely that's a bit unlikely when it's only one program that
crashes, and always at *exactly* the same point in the code...
The machine is due for a RAM upgrade anyway, so maybe I'll swap the whole
lot out and see if that makes any difference, but I'm not hopeful.
