As discussed in IRC, this should be linux-2.6. Version is at least
2.6.18.dfsg.1-12, because this is the one present in etch-4.0r0.
The bug should be present in 2.6.18-1 as well, but I haven't test it.

This is 2.6.22-3 (the one I tested). It should be solved starting
from 2.6.22-1, but I haven't tested it.

I'll do it after this mail :-)
