XFree crashing on kernel 2.4.28

Dear listmembers,
the latest information on my side comparing an strace - output of XFree86. Thanks to Admar who gave the hint moving XFree86 to XFree86.bin and doing a strace /usr/bin/X11/XFree86.bin out of the script /usr/bin/X11/XFree86.
XFree86 segfaults during startup. That's about all you get out of the straces - but someone of you might see even more.
As always, U60 - SMP @ 360 MHz, 512 MB of ram, Debian Sarge booting a vanilla kernel.
Thank you for any feedback.
The strace of the functional startup is really large, so I compressed it.
The file strace is a small excerpt out of the segfaulting 2.4.28 log.
I found out that even "normal" network communication is somewhat out of order with 2.4.28. A ssh may be successful - may be not. Something must have gone wrong along the migration - path from 2.4.27 to 2.4.28.

The .config files for compilation between 2.4.27 and 2.4.28 are identical. This cannot be the root cause for the problems I see.

Thanks for any inputs.

Take care
