NSLU2 with lenny armel: segfaults with filesystem commands (ls, cp, mv)


since the last kernel update on my NSLU2 running lenny armel
(2.6.26-2-ixp4xx #1 Thu Nov 5 05:37:51 UTC 2009 armv5tel GNU/Linux), I
regularly experience problems using simple filesystem commands: ls, cp and
mv (and maybe others, haven't tried) suddenly stop working and segfault
everytime they are called, either interactively or from scripts/cronjobs.
However, other file-related commands like "cat", which is also from
coreutils 6.10,  work just fine.

This happens at irregular intervals. Sometimes everything is fine for
days, then it already happens during the boot sequence, as I can see from
entries in the boot logfile. When these errors start occuring, only a
reboot helps.

Any idea what could be causing the problem or how to debug it? Could it
really have to do with the kernel update, or is this just a coincidence? I
could try testing that by reverting back to an older kernel, but how do I
accomplish that?

Regards, Richard
