Is this nondeterministic? I wouldn't entirely rule out the possibility of
the hardware messing up, or some error in the code elsewhere manipulating
the wrong data. Not that I can pinpoint *that* is what is happening, but do
not rule it out from the start that this could be a hardware thing. What
version of Erlang is this? A recent one, or an earlier one?
