This is a known problem in the 2.4.27-10.040815-1 kernel, the older
2.4.27-8... as used in the installer image doesn't have that problem,
newer ones like the version in unstable or the prospective security
update are also ok.

Updating to a newer kernel (e.g. from unstable) can be tricky because
of the flaky network connection, the best way I found is via the
installer image's "Execute a shell" feature.
