No error, just unhandled exceptions in the kernel. You can easily create
this messages if you do something like

main()
{
write (1, 0, 10);
}

This will give exactly 10 of these messages. I'm sure, future versions
of the kernel will return EFAULT in this case, it's just not here yet.

So, these messages most probably indicate buggy programs.
