Glad the patch fixed the issue. 

Unfortunately, hardware problems are a bit hard to characterize, and while
common memory problems will frequentl manifest in buildworld/kernel, they
can also exist and not do that. It might be interesting to look at netstat
-s and see if you have any/many problems with bad checksums at various
protocol layers.

Just to confirm: you're not running over-clocked, you don't have
debug.mpsafenet enabled, etc, right?  If you're using customer flags to
the compiler, etc, you might want to try eliminating them just to make
sure that's not responsible either.

Is this an SMP box or UP box?

Could you boot to single-user mode and do a full fsck of your file
systems, and confirm there's no file system corruption?  May well not be
it, but good to rule out.

Could you try another cvsup server just to see what happens?  I'm not sure
I expect any change, but another good thing to rule out.
