Actually, the kernel guys are more likely to say "it's a redhat kernel,
does it also happen on vanilla kernel?". The answer is highly likely to
be "no" (if I am guessing correctly, this problem has something to do
with NPTL, which means it was only there in the 2.4 kernel to begin with
because of a RedHat patch). However, as the problem DOES happen on
vanilla 2.6 kernel, this will not be a problem to reconstruct.
Also, please bear in mind that in order to debug this you will
positively absolutely have to compile your own kernel, from whatever

It's a kernel bug. There is nothing a userspace program should be able
to do in order to make such a problem appear. As such, you are asking
this on the wrong list. Do try either lkml (linux kernel mailing list),
or, more recommended, kernel-newbies.

Like I said, debugging kernel problems is not within this list's
