This kind of intermittent behavior _might_ indicate that a piece of
hardware in your system is getting flakey on its way to failure. I
have seen an HPUX and a LINUX system behave similarly when hardware
involved with hard drives and hard drive control began to fail. Some
one who has seen a hardware failure on a system with your OS may be
able to shed more light on this kind of problem for you. HTH.
