Well, congratulations on encountering so little bad RAM. ;-> Our

Ok. I may have a hardware problem what is it?
If it happens to be the hardware it can be:

exhaustively to make sure it's not a software problem - that includes
sending strace/ltrace/valgrind/whatever output to the developer
and asking them what they think. *Then* you can conclude it's a hardware
