Bug#457631: linux-image-2.6.18-5-powerpc: system freezes (occurred twice)

reassign 457631 linux-image-2.6.18-6-powerpc
found 457631 2.6.18.dfsg.1-18etch1

I've got 3 crashes with linux-image-2.6.18-6-powerpc in a few days
(I've been on holidays since April 1, using my PowerBook physically,
that's why the crashes reappeared).

I've just installed 2.6.24-1-powerpc. Let's see if it has the same

FYI, the current pump version was 0.8.24-2.1 with the last 3 crashes.

Also, it seems that the crashes occur only when I use the keyboard.
The application doesn't matter (I got crashes when typing in an Emacs
window and in an xterm). My PowerBook is on all the time (I have some
servers on it), and when I don't use it physically, it never crashes.
