The memory corruption you saw usually (almost always)
indicates a hardware problem. It may not have shown up
during normal usage because without ab your RAM has
more idle time and can keep up refreshing itself
Flakey mainboard chipsets could "forget" about such
things under heavy DMA load, or ... (who knows)
Setting the BIOS settings one notch more conservative
often fixes these marginal errors.
