I evaluated your notebook both in Mathematica versions 5.0 and 5.0.1,
and here are the results:
5.0 wrong eigenvalues
5.0.1 correct result
It clearly *is* a bug in the 5.0 version.
As I already mentioned, we had a similar problem
with complex hermitian matrices bigger than 256x256.
The bug seems only to affect complex matrices,
there was no problem with eigenvalues of real matrices.
