Package: kernel-image-2.6.6
Version: 5:123.Custom
Severity: important

Since I use Kernel 2.6 (any of the sub-versions between 2.6.0 to 2.6.6) some
programs freeze for approx. 1 minute on certain actions. Most annoying is,
that any mozilla-based programs delay (mostly) each time a new URL is
entered or a link is clicked.

The CPU load is 0% of that particular process in that while, but the window
doesn't respond to redraw, mouse, keyboard, ... events.

executing galeon with
 # strace -ff galeon
most often it holds at 
  futex(0x86f5d0c, FUTEX_WAIT, 2499, {6, 832910000}
in one of the various process IDs running in parallel.

Sometimes even during loading a site it holds. Viewing other tabs doesn't
work, because the window "hangs".

Oddly enough this happens very often when waiting for answers from the DNS

When using the environment variable
 # export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
the same behaviour appears.

GDM (or starting a GNOME session) has the same problem. When I log in with
the newest available GDN running a 2.6 kernel, the GNOME flash window pops
up. Then FVWM starts (including its FvwmPager). But then there is a break of
at least 1 minute. Only when this break is over, GNOME continues to start as
usual. This also happens only with Kernel 2.6.

Probably this problem also relates to GLIBC (I use 2.3.2)
