Well, I ran memtest86 overnight, and lo and behold, I came back to work
this morning and found that it had 3 errors. Here's the output:

Tst: 1
Pass: 11
Failing Address: 000125809f0 - 293.0 MB
Good: ffffffff
Bad: fbffffff
Err-Bits: 040000
Count: 3
Chan: 1

Does it sound like this might be the root of most, if not all, of my
problems I listed yesterday? It'd certainly be an easy fix to replace the
memory. :)
