The Inquirer: IBM covers up 4GB DIMM problem

At the Inquirer you find the following storyIBM covers up 4GB DIMM problem:

So, what do we have? Random failures, patches where there should not be any, recalled replacements, and parts from the mothership directly. Luckily, IBM isn't telling its customers of these high end and shatteringly expensive boxes WTF is going on. How nice of them. If you have had this happen to you, let us know please.

Bad idea, really really bad idea. Never try to cover up problems at high end unix. Once a customer burned his fingers with a piece of hardware or thinks he will burn his fingers soon, you have a problem. An escalation after covering up a problem can be really nasty.
