Comment 1 Preston Brown 2001-08-13 16:21:18 EDT
Have you tried this with the errata kernel (2.2.19-6.2.7)?
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-08-24 10:16:59 EDT
I need additional feedback to fully assess this bug.  Please provide.
Comment 3 Preston Brown 2002-01-07 11:04:00 EST
closed due to lack of additional feedback, and the likelihood that newer 
errata kernels have fixed the problem.
