do you have a core?
which version of fedora?
what is the rest of the system config?

but if a stack pointer is going bad, it sounds like a ram chip has a bad spot.
when it gets used it crashes the system.

ctcs, aka cerebrus, vasoft's memory checker.
get a copy and use this to test the ram chips, in a different box.
this tool WILL, repeat WILL crash the system.
it is designed to pound the ram into system crash.
do NOT use on production machines.*

if they test clean, then you have a config problem or not enough swap drive.
( swap partition = 2*ram is the minimum )

* taken from package description of cerebrus
