Could you check if there are any (relevant) differences between the kernel 
configurations used by Fedora and Debian?
If you find any, could you try compiling a custom Debian kernel to see if 
that indeed fixes things?

If not, then it looks as if Fedora has a patch that is not yet in the 
upstream kernel (or at least not in 2.6.18) and that Debian therefore 
Could you try to find that in their changelog or maybe by diff'ing the 
kernel sources?

Could you also try the new 2.6.18 that was uploaded yesterday?
