It just happened again without me doing anything special, just normal
desktop use, surfing the net, reading email etc. This time the kernel
version was 2.6.22-g1db6178c

This time the start of the messages look like this (slightly different
from last time - quoted below):

frequent, but that's just a subjective feeling, quite vague...
