On this subject, I keep forgetting about this one.  I get these:

[2051091.046935] APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)
[2051111.879316] APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)
[2051158.127504] APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)
[2051163.383768] APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)

Perpetually.  Pages and pages and pages of them.  I looked into it once, and 
changed something to try to make them go away, but it apparently didn't work.

Anyway, it seems to be a symptomless problem.  Something isn't quite right, 
but everything I do with my computer works fine.

Except logging out of KDE, actually.  Logging out causes a hard freeze, but I 
think that's the damn ATI drivers.

Maybe they're related, maybe not.  I guess the bottom line is that things like 
this are probably best solved by buying a new computer, and not by spending 
hours wading through pages and pages of arcane kernel hacker gobbledegook in 
a futile effort to fix a problem whose nature is only comprehensible to total
