Unfortunately, this seems to be a bug that nobody has figured out how to
fix. It happens with the Dectalk Express as well as the Dectalk USB in
RS232 mode. It also effects the Dectalk PC. I would guess that it has
something to do with the exact way text is sent to the synthesizer.
As to your other question, have you over-clocked your CPU by any chance?
I've never gotten any messages like that, but I suspect that you are
getting it from the kernel option called "machine check exception." You
could turn it off, but that would only mask what sounds like a problem
which may bite you later.
