PIX 515 crashing

Unanswered Question
Apr 29th, 2008

I have a PIX 515 running 8.0(3) that is crashing every 20 minutes or so, this is what immediately appears on the console when it crashes:

============= CHECKHEAPS HAS DETECTED A MEMORY CORRUPTION ===============

Reason: Free buffer corrupted rc=1

I have swapped out the physical memory with new memory but the PIX keeps crashing, so I don't think it is a problem with the memory installed.

It might be buffer corruption or any misconfiguration issues. Please provide you show tech output.
