it's not so much that I'm suspecting "that's the problem", it's one thing
I would try out, because it seems rather simple to do so, and because it
*might* make a difference. If it doesn't, it's a cause we can rule out. If
it does, it's a point of knowledge we've gained which might help others in
the future.

You could always reinstall with logical partitions after that to keep your
systems identical ...
