I get those sometimes, too. In one recent case, I saw something like
Oct 25 00:01:44 neuromancer kernel: 4gb seg fixup, process mono (pid 3496), cs:ip 73:081324d8
Oct 25 00:13:24 neuromancer kernel: printk: 154315 messages suppressed.
Oct 25 00:13:24 neuromancer kernel: 4gb seg fixup, process tomboy (pid 3496), cs:ip 73:0813235f
I'm not sure if the message in the middle refers to messages similar to
the one above or below it. I've not been able to track it down. (One
could argue that it refers to the line below it, as they occurred at the
same second, but I think the kernel would be happy to suppress 150,000
messages during the course of 12 minutes, and then tell me as much as soon
as it comes across a different message, ie: the third one.)
Anyway, for your case: look at nearby messages to see if you can find
clues to some service or application that is misbehaving or doing
