I solved the problem by booting with the kernel option 'noapic'. Thanks
to the previous responders for helping get my investigation on track.
I'm curious: What is apic, and what's the tradoff of running 'noapic'?
My processor is an Athlon XP 2700+, kernel 2.6.12, if it matters.
I wonder if my CPU was unintentionally overclocked.

It was the system (kernel) clock running fast, compared to clocks that
run at the frequency of the NIST atomic clock, give or take a smidge.
