You're running 656, which eliminates a few things. Thanks.
I remember hearing about other people who reported the same problem on a
stock system, but I'm pretty sure that was 650 or 653. There's a
possibility some changes you've made might have interfered with the system
but let's presume this isn't the case.
I'll trust you know what you've done to it better than I can guess.
Have a look at these bugs in Trac:
Do any of the symptoms sound familiar? Does it 'smell' like the flash disk
is full, or should we be thinking along other lines?
