    Yeah, I get one of those on boot, too. Or at least I did. I was going to
    turn the processor checking stuff back on to see if it happened
    consistently. What processor is it, Tomasz? Mine's an Athlon. Output of
    "cat /proc/cpuinfo" at the end, if anyone's remotely interested...

    Thanks for the link, Randy, I'll give it a go tonight. Although with my
    knowledge of current processor archictecture, I'm guessing it'll parse it
    from one format I don't have a clue about into a more verbose format I don't
    have a clue about ;-)
