I've seen this among a host of other small little errors. About 3
months ago, known-stable programs would randomly crash, weird binary
states occurred, awkward graphical glitches, etc. I was unable to make
them happen on command, and they didn't happen repeatably across reboots.
My system partition was using ext4 at that point. I can't prove it, but
my hunch is that ext4 was to blame; I've yet to experience these "minor
little errors" since reinstalling my system on an ext3 partition.
A shot in the dark, as I'll bet you aren't using ext4.
