Interesting.   I had a problem with my old nVidia ION system (nVidia
MCP79) where I'd get bus errors with a SanDisk SSD.  I ended up swapping
it with another manufacturer's drive, and it seemed to be OK.  At this
point, I blamed it on the drive being defective.

The system in question has since been retired, so I probably shouldn't
care.  But I'm curious if you have any more details about this bug.
