Anybody???  I have narrowed down the problem, it seems to be triggered 
when BackupPC_dump runs.  BackupPC is also writing to a PATA disk 
attached to a PATA-to-SATA converter attached to the normal (non-PERC) 
SATA controller on the motherboard.  I switched back to 
2.6.15-27-amd64-server kernel, I think that might fix the problem, 
because I think BackupPC may have been working fine before I switched to 
the xeon kernel.

I can't crash the system tonight because I won't be working near that 
location tomorrow, so I have disabled BackupPC, but will try running 
BackupPC_dump manually with debugging tomorrow night to see if it is 
fine with the server kernel.
