I initially tought it might just be X locking up, so I tried the copy 
from the Console and noticed the stack dump.

Switched back to 2.6.9 this morning, copied around 200 GB of data, and 
since that worked I was able to add the 200GB drive back into the 
degradded Raid 5 array which rebuilt fine.

Run memtest over night a few times to test the ram, but I'm blaming the 
kernel package as I have not had an issue all day, the machine only 
lasted 5 minutes (under load) with the newer kernel.

Would be nice to know what exactly the problem is but I have no leads at 
this stage.  I am using two different IDE controllers in this machine so 
it might be a driver issue in the newer kernel.
