No, the "bleeding edge" of devel kernels is the ac* patches. :-)

I simply can't live w/o running the latest, gratest kernel. ;-)

Seriously, I thought since the test* kernels are already pretty(?) close to 
2.4.0-release it would be a Good Thing(TM) to install one of them to be 
prepared for the things that are coming... I usually don't have a problem 
with running alpha kernels. As you can see from this case I'm pretty smart 
and blamed the kernel, not myself. :-) If things don't work I simply 
downgrade to the last version that DID work, or upgrade to the forthcoming 

I hope that the developers are aware of the problem...
