This seems to be a linux-2.4 kernel bug
(see http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0208.2/1177.html)

Comment 3 Peter Martuccelli 2006-01-05 19:37:00 UTC
RHEL3 is entering maintenance mode, this issue has been considered and will not
be included in RHEL3.

Closing this issue out as wontfix.
