Just for documentation, I wanted to follow up on how we 
resolved this...

We ended up replacing the memory, motherboard and processor 
- in that order. Luckily, we got the motherboard and 
processor replaced under warranty.

It appears that something was wrong with processor. Nothing 
else we replaced solved the problem. Dell decided, when 
replacing the motherboard, NOT to replace the CPU chip - 
which resulted in them making two trips out here instead of 

In any case, thanks to everyone who provided feedback. It 
did end up being a hardware problem.


P.S. The Gentoo installation of Icecast/Darkice was 
ridiculously simple. The Gentoo installation itself, on the 
other hand....
