Dear Peter T. Breuer:

First of all, this is not a "help me fix up my problems" type of question.
As I demonstrated quite clearly, I went to a great deal of trouble to
isolate the problem -- it is a data corruption problem which is found only
under Linux. I have received a post from someone considerably more friendly
indicating that the problem is a known data corruption problem with the
CD ROM drive I own and gave me a patch to test.

I have performed memory tests and not one of them has failed. And no, I am
not getting all sorts of segfaults in gcc or any other program, for that
matter. Except for this problem with the CD ROM drive my Linux system
works quite well -- so I do not "evidently have a memory problem".

Save your "helpful" comments for someone who cares. If you don't understand
what I am asking for, then leave it alone and let someone else handle it.

Please use linux.stupid.responses for your posts. Thanks.
