I have this problem on two machines, actually.
It would be highly unlikely for both to have hardware problems.
Though possible, of course.

Reducing ARC seems to help, though, and I assume that is the problem the 
machine ran into because I still have 29GB out of 32GB wired now, with 
an ARC limited  to 60% of kmem_size.
