If the other machine has identical HW and SW, then I'd
have to suspect the HW, like memory going bad, PSU too
weak or giving up, or inadequate cooling.

We could try to reproduce the error using your test case
(if you can share it), but since you say it works on another
identical machine, I'm not really suspecting a bug in HiPE
at this point.

p.s. That 2.6.9-5.EL kernel is way out of date.
