Spun Bearing ARRGGHHH

I have recently had a noise in the engine, light knocking at 4000 rpm. I have taken a look in my oil filter to see if there is a problem, and loe and behold, Copper in the oil filter. This has happened before, 20K miles ago, and it was a spun rod bearing. The engine was professionally rebuilt, $13K, and it seems like the same problem is back.

I bought the car with 120K miles on it, with a $20K rebuild on the engine at 110K miles. The car now has 160K miles on it. Does anybody have any idea what would cause the repeated spun bearing?

This time, I think that I will rebuild it.
