I finally got another trace out of a 2.6.19.1 with this debug patch..
I'm starting to wonder if this is hardware related.
That box makes me suspicious as its motherboard has a bunch
of bulging capacitors on it. I had three of these, the previous
two died like so: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kernelslacker/251807263/in/set-72157594298237090/
This board hasn't started 'oozing' yet, but I think it may be on
the cards.

iirc, the previous oopses were around the same time of morning,
whilst cron.daily was hammering the hell out of the disk.
Either there's a subtle bug, or this board just can't take the pressure.
