Machine check exception?
I have quite a number of the following message in my logs. They all appear to occur while I am playing World of Warcraft in Wine. What, exactly, does this mean, and what would cause it? There are 15 of these in the last two days, all of them identical except for one, where the number is slightly different.

Aug 18 16:35:18 [kernel] MCE: The hardware reports a non fatal, correctable incident occurred on CPU 0.
Aug 18 16:35:18 [kernel] Bank 2: 940040000000017a

I feel I should be worried except that it says its not fatal...

I remember seeing a series of false machine checks with some combination of kernel and nvidia binary driver. It went away after I upgraded both. I don't know if this is your problem or not...
