could you try running memtest86? This may be a sign of a duff dimm...

I ran stress again, and got a slightly different oops.

did the later errata kernels fix this ? There were significant VM
updates later.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
