Subject: AMBER: phantom sander8 in dmesg

I've been getting many of these unexpected messages on the console.
They also get written to dmesg:

sander8(30010): unaligned access to 0x60000fffffffa404, ip=0x20000000001df021

No one is running sander on the machine. No one has run sander on it
recently. I just got 8 more while I was off searching archives, etc.
If I do a ps on sander, I don't get anything, though I suspect the
number in parentheses above is a process ID. A routine ps gives:

# ps -ef | grep sander
root 30803 17262 0 16:13 pts/2 00:00:00 grep sander

The system is RHEL AS 4 U 4 ia64. I do have a bad HD on one side of a
mirror RAID, but it seems weird that the two would be related.

Any ideas?
