Wouldn't that be likely to affect the outcome?  Though rt now, I'm seeing
a wide variance in fail times (with system memory barely scratched).

Just now, I started a D/l of all the sources in my distro -- failed after
<100 packages.  Restarted, and it completed 44000 packages.  such randomness
makes for more likely Heisenbugs...  Thanks for the ptrs,
