Yes, this is correct.
When applying the latest update for etch for the kernel 2.6.18 this broke
the network driver for the DFE-580TX sundance driver
For the sundance driver this previous version worked well :
The version from the latest update break the driver : 2.6.18.dfsg.1-24
I put the severity to grave because those cards are mainly used in
firewall and router and then have a direct effect on the whole network.
