$ uname -a
Linux snoopy 2.6.24-1-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Mar 27 16:52:38 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I had similar experience sometime ago.  Then problem disapeared as I
updated system.  So if suggestion by others does not work, think about
moing to a newer kernel in unstable.

(But watch out.  One kernel update caused me to loose my network device
ue to kernel bug in unstable.)
