By "typical" you mean is a known bug that cannot be solved/bypassed by
any means but getting the latest and greatest kernel? :-?

Yes, you can. Indeed, you have several alternatives:
1/ Use stable and a backported kernel (currently 2.6.39)
2/ Try with Debian testing (kernel 3.0)
3/ Compile your own kernel from whatever source (Debian/kernel.org) and
work with that
