Yes, copying binaries from one machine to another helped for me, too, 
but I also simply copied /boot/kernel.old to /boot/kernel on one of the 
defective servers and things obviously ran fine again ...
But I was trapped by another pitfall, I do compile on specific machines 
with specific compiler/arch/cpu option flags, so core2 based boxes 
compile with 'nocona' while older AMD Athlon64 based machines compile 
with 'k8'. That resulted in the past in crashes and in this case, too.

Hope this weirdness gets fixed soon ...
