kernel upgrade problem

I'm running a dual core amd64 with Debian unstable, kernel 2.6.17-2-amd64.
Today, I tried to upgrade to kernel 2.6.18-3-amd64.  I get an unexpected
error message concerning a buffer-write failure.  I have attached a
script file with the error message.  I searched the mailing list, and didn't
see a related post.  I apologize in advance if I missed it.  Can anyone
shed some light?
