Core 2 Errata -- problematic or overblown?

My one and only encounter with a CPU bug occured with the Pentium Pro. In some assembly code, I closely intermixed code and data. This ended up triggering a bug related to self-modifying code detection. It was all documented in an errata, which I was grateful for. It was lucky that I happend to be developing on a PPro, otherwise it would have been painful.

The nasty CPU bugs are the ones that aren't specific to certain obscure code sequences, but can randomly affect anything. The AMD K6 had one like that, as I recall.
