I don't have that one, but it seems highly unlikely to me that a
corrupt font would work intermittently.

Are you able to switch to another similar-looking font - you can buy
almost anything from fonts.com, or copy from a Windows fonts directory
- for a couple of days to eliminate this?

Also, when you got the DarkGardenMK.afm error, were you actually
trying to use that font?

Personally I think there might be something up with the disk. Is it
definitely a single server you control, or are you using some
clustered environment? If a single box, then perhaps the disk area
holding the fonts is causing problems.

Have you defragged? I know they say Linux doesn't need it, but the
laptop I type on now started crashing intermittently (and often) a
month ago, while passing all tests. I defragged it and it's been
rock solid ever since.
