Bug#490704: System hang shortly after boot
I'm not certain that it's the same bug, but it's similar, so I'm
replying to the existing bug.

The machine is a Dell Inspiron 1300, tracking testing. Booting the
previous kernel (from linux-image-2.6.24-1-686) works just fine. After
crash, there's no response from keyboard (not even the capslock or
numlock lights can be turned on) and no apparent disk activity.
Post-reboot there's nothing relevant in the logs, I don't know how to
extract some debugging information.
