Just discovered sarge falls over too, however less frequently. So perhaps it's
something else, I'm not sure now.
I've switched the drive out, I actually managed to find the original 20gig unit
that came with it.
One thing I observed today is free memory getting rather low whilst compiling,
it shows about 187Mb total, and I've watched it go as low as 8mb free. The
only other thing I can think of is it's possibly overheating and falling over.
