Thanks for the sage advice.
Since the machine is still under warranty I'm going to send it in to 
Apple authorized service in Athens. They probably have pretty good 
diagnostic tools.

We had one day before this started when the power went out about 10 
times while I was working. Since I have no UPS the system might have 
been compromised.

I'm getting a UPS.
