I've noticed these seem to be popping up more and more on older boxes. My
ancient quad ppro spits them out frequently when its under high load for example.

APIC messages are retransmitted in event of errors, so it's just informational
that the hardware is crap :)

They can sometimes occur on modern hardware too. My turion laptop generates them
periodically. Again, I've chalked it up to hardware glitches. The exact reason
for them occuring could be anything, but they're usually safe to ignore.
