Everything seems to be working fine with kernel 2.6.6 and earlier.
Also 2.6.9 kernel seems to work fine.
fixed in latest errata kernel ?
Tested with latest kernel (2.6.9-1.6_FC2) and 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 and
Now all of those works ok in this situation.
The case was tested with a few other people (and with Debian using
2.6.8 kernel) and they had same problem.
Wonder what might have caused it...
