I regularly perform an 'aptitude full-upgrade'. One day, after a reboot
(which I do very rarely, however), I noticed the issue for the first
time. Unfortunately, I do not know what was changed in the upgrade. What
makes you think this is a hardware issue? The error is quite specific
and always the same (about g_type_init) for all affected programs, as
far as I checked. For failing memory I would expect random segmentation
faults or something like that.
