While you're in there I'd take a close look at the XIO module latching hardware, and check to make sure the chassis or XIO carrier didn't get tweaked somewhere in a previous life. Unless you are very large (and the floor very weak), if the compression connectors are bad enough to generate connection errors from heavy footsteps it seems plausible you'd also see the occasional XIO error during non-seismic use.
