block on freelist XXXXXXXX isn't free?

I have been getting this message on my system, just strating today. If I
try to run more than X windows, a couple terminals and a couple simple
applications (workman and xv) I start getting this:

kernel: Problem: block on freelist at XXXXXXXX isn't free.
kernel: Unable to load interpreter

The XXXXXXXX has varied only slightly, but it always stays the same within
a single boot. The latest one is 00b61c90 but I doubt that that's
especially meaningful. I'm running Linux 2.0.17 right now, and at this
point I don't know what other info would be useful to anyone. So, PLEASE,
if this isn't a known problem, let me know what information to send to get
this remedied. I've already tried running memtest, and I let it do about
2.5 million passes, and it gave no errors on the memory. Thanks for any
