It passes memtest86+ just fine. The system has been in heavy
use doing big science calculations on big datasets (multi-gigabyte)
for months; these do not get corrupted when copied/moved around
on the old parallel IDE disk, nor moving/copying on an NFS mount
to a file server. Only the SATA disk is misbehaving.
