This may be stating the obvious, but have you checked other factors, like maybe
you have a bad memory module in the machine, memory gets corrupted several
different ways, one is the possibility of a bad memory module, maybe just 1 or 2
bytes are bad, not enough to cause real problems, until you get an application like
Firebird, that does it's own memory checking. Another possibility is a shared library
(.DLL/.so) that's doing things improperly, and using memory it shouldn't. Drivers run
in kernal space, so the normal memory boundry checking may not catch it.
