Same thing with me - I had a FreeBSD system that would get type 11 errors,
usually when building world.  I put Windows on it and set it up for my
wife, and the problems went away.

With my wife's usage patterns and the all-binary nature of Windows, it
probably wasn't even using the same areas of hardware as FreeBSD was.  If
I was developing software on that machine, under Windows, it probably
would have been a different story.
