Could Bad RAM cause backup problems?

Does SuperDuper buffer the data through RAM when it is copying a clone to another disk or does it do a direct disk to disk transfer. And if so, could bad memory be the cause of applications being visible on the system, but not launching?

Here is the full story:

We use Super Duper to set up client machines and have been using it without any problems on countless Macs.

One system though has had a problem with applications not launching (these include Safari, iDVD, iMovie and other Apple applications). This machine was later confirmed to have bad RAM in it and upon removing the bad memory, the applications still failed to launch.

I have read over a similiar issue listed here:

but I didn't try it since this is a clients machine and I didn't want to risk any further damage. Currently they are backing up all of their project files and I am going to reclone the system.

Disk Repair and Repair permissions have been run on the machine though.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, or if I made this sound too confusing, I can try to clear it up.
