Are you experiencing the problem both with and without ACPI enabled?

For me, disabling ACPI cures it on this amd64 box with nVidia nForce3
250 chipset.

Cameron Grant recently sent me the URL for a patch he had come up with

I tried it, but the problem still persisted as long as ACPI is enabled. 
Nonetheless, you may want to try it and see how it works for you.

This is really one mysterious problem!
