SUMMARY: nfs ghost story

Thanks to all and sundry for your suggestions. The responses were basically:

1) Install the nfs jumbo patch.
2) Check the memory.

I'd checked the memory many times, and it always passed the diagnostic,
so I installed the nfs jumbo patch and built a new kernel. This seemed
to make the problem worse, the machine began crashing more frequently.

At this point I yanked blocks of memory. This seems to have done the
trick, although it is too soon to be completely sure.
