SubjectRe: Any lingering Athlon bugs in Kernel 2.4.14?

They get random NULL pointer dereference attempts from the kernel, as well

Really I should write down the error messages.. but basically the system
prints what looks like a black screen of death to the console and then
becomes completely non-responsive.
