Problem appeared in my 2.4.13-ac4 yesterday at home too. It happened to
me when I was checking health of my HDD - either during 'dd if=/dev/hde1
of=/dev/null bs=8M', or during copying all files from VFAT (/dev/hde1)
partition to /dev/null on filesystem level file by file.

And if we are talking about it, 2.4.13-ac4 here at work reports that
too. But strange thing is that this machine has just 200MB VFAT partition
of no use, and I do not remember that I ever did read from /dev/hd* since
last reboot. Shift-scrolllock does not report any unusual values.

I'll upgrade to -ac6 and I'll see.
