The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. This kernel still includes ebt_ulog.
Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable/testing and tell
us whether the problem persists.
The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
