Many thanks to all who responded.

Lots of people have suffered similar which isn't good.
Lots of people have had CPU's replaced by Sun as a "fix" for this.

Looking further and further into it, moving up to 105181-26 for 2.6 is
certainly a good move.

This obviously begs the question why Sun are willing to swap out an
expensive piece of hardware for what seems to be a well-known, well-reported
problem experienced by many customers when there's a possibility a patch can
fix the issue.

I suspect there *are* some faulty 400Mhz+ processors in the field with
ecache problems - that would certainly explain Sun's willingness to
part-swap so readily.

Thanks go the following for their opinions, experiences, thoughts and
