Yes. consensus of the messages I received is that it's the cpu flagging an
internal hardware problem.

Suggested causes include:
thermal problems
CPU actually bad

Definitely not caused by:
Bad Rams, mb-chipset.

In my case the error only occured once and never again - marked it up to bad
karma on that day.

Bye, Martin
