The funny thing still is that i get this error regardless
of whether i overclock, underclock, or leave as is using
kernel 2.5.2-pre1, when i start X:

Inconsistency detected by dynamic-link.h: 62: elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion `! "bad dynamic tag"' failed!

X eventually starts, minus the Sawfish window manager.

Everything's fine from kernel version 2.5.1 down. If it
is indeed disk corruption of some kind, i guess i better
run an older kernel and fsck.
