Same behaviour observed on an IBM Thinkpad 600e.
fixed in an update ?
also what OS are you running? Fedora ? RHEL ?
The bug report had originally been posted for FC1 test 1. There has
never been any update for this package, neither for the final release
of FC1 nor among the released updates.
The bug was definitely resolved as of kernel-utils-2.4-9.1.131 after
upgrading to FC2.
