Not that I know of.
I got one other bugreport about this. I replied that it might
be the kernel (there's an issue with the FPU emulation in most
alpha Linux kernels that is mostly solved in 2.2.14pre16) but
haven't had a reply yet.
Could you try to compile and boot a 2.2.14pre16 kernel to
see if that fixes the problem, and post the results here ?
