Please always try to spell out all the steps needed to get to some
result, for instance, in this case the info above, that you are asking
for three counters to be recorded at once probably has the key to
reproduce this, as I think that you may run your workload and sometimes
not get one page fault, leading tho that division by zero, but I have to
try to reproduce it now that I have this clue.

Thanks,
