> Symliniks Disappearing?, Maybe a physical memory problem?

I am lately experiencing an odd problem.

For some undetermined reasons, symlinks tend to disappear randomly from my /usr/lib/ directory. Always the same ones, I am using hentges ROM, and when it happens always the same apps don't work anymore: opiemail, qpdf, konqueror, xmms, several games and some other apps. I've tried to launch the non-working apps from the console, they point to missing libraries (some of them being on /media/card/usr/lib and some on /usr/lib, but with different names). If I re-link the libs manually, things got back to working.

This problem has occoured me four times in the last week, even if I don't do nothing. One time I just suspended the Z, and when I powered it back again, the symlinks were puff. It's strange also because everything was working fine lately, then this problem shows up, and even after several re-flashing it does come back (usually before I am able to finish my installation and setup all my hardware and favorite apps).

Using ipkg-link mount /media/card does not help: the broken link are repaired, but the working one are messed up (and xmms got especially messed).
Manual linking does work pretty well, except that is time consuming and I am unable to get opiemail back to work. It just says: : QuickLauncher invoked as: opiemail

Since this same problem is coming every time but completly at random I am starting to think about a flash memory physical problem. May that be the issue? How to check it out? I know about the existence of service menus, but don't know how to call them on the SL-5500. I also know they may be dangerous. Any suggestion about this?
Or am I moving completly to the wrong direction?

Thanks for any help!
