I've also found that it's a great burn-in for a system. It's really good at testing ram, cpu and network (for lots of "light" connections). Apparently it can be a good filesystem test too!

I guess I'll move back to 2.6.18 for now.

Ubuntu does not use 2.6.18 nor 2.6.19, so Ubuntu users are safe
AFA this bug is concerned.
