I've recently discovered these "freezes" are due to faulty hardware,
and the crash happens not particularly because the kernel is bad, but
because it exercises slightly different elements in the hardware.

On Dell GX270, a motherboard with bad capacitors will not always
crash, only when the power demand is over a threshold.  For me, the
crashes becan recently.

To check your motherboard, in case you have the same variety, look at
the capacitors (little columns on MOBO) and make sure the tops are
flat, not bulging or even swolen.

Also, run the memory test on the FC rescue disk.
