+100!

What is the architecture? Do you have physical access? If it's x86 and
you do have physical access, 100% you should run memtest86+ against it.
Let it run all night.

If it's a production server, replace it with one you trust and then
figure out what the problem is with the old box.

We had 6 app servers at [bloated CA name removed to protect the guilty]
in production and 2 of them were giving us SIG11's. The solution was to
throw them out and replace them with 2 new ones. One of those sucked,
too, so we had to play server-roulette again before we got all 6 good ones.

Good luck,
