That's two votes for checking the cooling, so I'll do that.

I'm also going to try the same activities, but without running Distributed
Folding at the same time.  That won't prove whether it's a bug in DF, or
just load generally, but maybe something else will give me some help in that

FWIW, it ran its weekly backup (with DF running) without incident. I doubt
that xfsdump-over-the-network is much of a load, however, so it doesn't
prove anything except that computers can be perverse.  But we knew that.

More when I know it.
