That's a known problem in kernel 2.3.6. If you are using development
kernels, you should read the linux-kernel mailing list as well. This
has been discussed in detail over there, and a patch was posted as well.
Note that the next few patchlevels of 2.3.x are going to be even
more unstable, due to a rewrite of the page cache / buffer cache.
Indifference will certainly be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
