Not since my last BIOS upgrade.

This is from what dmesg's I still had laying around:
2.6.22-rc6-mm1: No
2.6.23-rc1-mm1, 2.6.23-rc2-mm1, 2.6.23-rc3-mm1: Yes
2.6.23-rc3-mm1 after BIOS upgrade: No
2.6.23-rc4-mm1...2.6.24-rc2-mm1: No

ACPI doesn't look guilty.
acpi=noirq:

[ 39.916542] ACPI: setting ELCR to 0e20 (from 0c20)
[ 39.921855] ExtINT not setup in hardware but reported by MP table
[ 39.928244] ..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
[ 39.934586] Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't
work! Try using the 'noapic' kernel parameter
[ 39.934587]

acpi=off:
[ 0.000000] Freeing SMP alternatives: 28k freed
