You didn't comment on what kernel you're running. 2.4.22 has some
patches for the ia32 mode on the opteron, and these are probably the
same patches already in 2.6. We have found apps that reliably crash
our Opterons without this patch, but moving to 2.6 was much more
stable. We haven't tried 2.4.22.
