Found the source of my interference!

I have four of these high-powered fluorescent lights in my garage:

When I leave them on, I get random errors popping up in the log file every so often. If I turn them off, nothing. So, that's definitely the cause of the errors.

I'm going to get a filter to put between the switch and the fixtures to see if that'll do the trick. I'm guessing the lights are causing both 900Mhz interference as well as power line interference, and the latter is easier to take care of than the former. If that doesn't work, I'm going to get a timer switch so that the light automatically turns off 30-60 minutes after it's turned on (Lutron makes a nice one).
