Where are my bit errors when I need them?

So... for a long time I was fighting with bit errors on spitz -- corrupted filesystems, kernel compilations often failing. I got into habit of running compilation five times, so that it finished...

...and now the errors are gone. I still see some data corruption after long suspend, but did >5 kernel compilations and it always worked... while before I sometimes needed 5 tries to compile single kernel.

Weird. Does spitz dislike cold winter weather or what?
