Memory width over 40000 bits in lshw?

I have been having problems with crashes and checked memory with lshw and got what I think are too big memory width on my lenovo ThinkCentreM58p.  I was getting this with both original and expanded memory sticks.

Output follows

lshw -c memory wrote:

Re: Memory width over 40000 bits in lshw?

That is peculiar ... all of my computers say 64-bit for the memory width. Have you tried running memtest86+?

I ran mprime (prime95) under the blended stress test and the system performed perfectly for about 3 hours.

Did you run lshw as root?

Yes, and I get the same result with dmidecode

Re: Memory width over 40000 bits in lshw?

I'm assuming the width is supposed to be either 32 or 64 bits. I've got a width of 2244 bits for some reason. Does anybody know what this value should be?
