   I added some more information to bug #280384 yesterday (I think
this is probably the same problem). Briefly, it appears to be some
strange problem with the binary loader that only seems to affect later
2.4 and 2.6 kernels. I think that it's going to take someone much more
familiar with the X code than I to take it much further.
