I also have a qube2, and it locks up with most kernels, including the
lenny default kernel, the etchnhalf and 2.6.29-rc5-r5k-cobalt. I usually 
revert to 2.6.22-3-r5k-cobalt, which runs for months without problems.

Any kernel will lock up on my qube2 (and used to on my NAS RAQ) within 
minutes of heavy net+disk I/O if I have DMA enabled for the hard disk.
