Thanks. I didn't get around to trying them until they were in sid, on my
university's local mirror, but anyway... They have the same problem as
before. Sometimes they oops in kacpid, sometimes they boot but soon after
become _very_ slow and lock up for minutes on end (with occasional periods
of responsiveness) with kacpid taking all the CPU. It's not just the
console that's messed up; I can ping but not ssh in.
