Yes, as stated before at least one file exhibits corruption on every
iteration. I spent four days doing nothing but running tests while changing
variables (e.g., the source of the data, whether regular async or direct I/O
was used).

That is one thing I did not try.

Yes, the problem still occurred after booting with "mem=1g". Problem also
occurs if I remove half the memory (2 x 1 GiB DIMMS). Problem still occurs
if I swap the pairs of DIMMs I removed with the ones still in the system.
Memtest86 was run 24 hours on the full 4 GiB without error.
