There is a chance that this is causing the problem, although after a reboot the
same files showed the problems. Those were huge files, which increases the
chance to hit the memory flaw... I will attempt a memory check (bit hard: no
physical access to the machine myself) Will take me a few days.

Thanks for the hint.
