I suppose what I'm *really* asking is what the basis is for assuming that this *isn't* a kernel
bug and can therefore be safely ignored, seeing as the oops is real, the hardware is fine and the
kernel is untainted? That seems to cover the bases from where I'm sitting.

Cheers,
Chris

P.S. No micro-heatwaves have occurred here, either. Do we all need to install muon detectors in
our homes before reporting bugs now, so that we can exclude cosmic ray events too?

This was the only time I've seen it, before or since.

There is nothing wrong with my RAM. I tested it quite extensively when I upgraded to 2 GB.

But MY kernel is clearly untainted. So what other explanation is there apart from a kernel bug?

Personally, I dumped 2.6.19.x like a hot coal as soon as I tripped over this bug:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7707

I didn't take much to trigger it, either. But the silence has been deafening.

Is there going to be another 2.6.18-stable release?
