I once had a board (high quality) with memory (high quality) with
memory problems - ie a simple make -j8 buildworld would reliably panic
the system, but running memtest for hours did not show any problems.
It turned out to be a timing issue - we did hit exactly the combination
of memory and mainboard that didn't work well together. We swapped memory
with a different system and both were running fine afterwards.
So please do not rely on output of memtest alone - it is not stressing
the system the way real applications do.

Can't comment on kgdb-output. Sorry.
