As I said, it only happened once and never again.

I actually restored it (or tried to) back to the image that I had backed up
from it the last time I updated it, several months ago.

I don't have any Windows setups at all. I can't rule out hardware fault in
absolute terms, but since I saw this same behaviour under FC4 and it went away
under FC5 only to apparently return under FC6, the circumstances really do
appear to point to software errors of some kind.
I did file a Red Hat bug report regarding this issue over this past weekend, but
it has apparently not been updated since I filed it.
