I think it is probably time for you to run memtest86 on it:
Memory errors would go a long way to explaining all the troubles you have had, if they all involve a single machine.
Later as it turns out, I did have hardware problems.. that computer is another project i need to get round to it.... someday...... Now im using a horrible "corporate" workstation with 768MB of RAM, until i fix the nicer machine's BIOS
These gremlins really hate me....
