Hi Alan,
Thank you for the suggestions. I already have daily automated backup, so I 
guess in worse case scenario I can re-install clean. It's just I have many 
software and configuration I compiled myself (this is work laptop I use for 
development) so it'd just be a bit of a pain to do it (and try to avoid it).

The laptop is running live CD stable. I have tried booting off all the older 
kernels I have. I have tried removing the battery for several hours. All of 
those without success. 

The only thing I haven't checked is chkrootkit, as I think it's rather 
unlikely: I'm behind firewall most of the time (at work and at home), it's 
always updated, and other precautions, but I'll try to check it anyway.

Is it not possible that anything in the software somehow is causing this ?
