I don't think so. I've seen this happening also with 2.0.30,
an Intel SMP chipset and a Quantum Fireball. It started right
after I made the switch from 2.0.27 to 2.0.30 and happened
consistently during one week befor it was noticed when
an ugly crash with extensive ext2 corruption happened.

After going back to 2.0.27 I have not seen it again and it
has been under moderate load (8 regular users and a web crawler,
which makes heavy use of disk IO to store and retrieve indexes)
for about 2 weeks now.
