I had this issue. It is a bug in the kernel that was introduced in the upgrade from 6.0 to 6.0.1. It will likely be fixed in the upgrade to 6.0.2.
In the meantime you can go to http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ to learn how to compile a "vanilla" kernel from kernel.org I am now using 2.6.38 and it fixed the issue.
Or on second thought...
Backports now has the 2.6.38 available for squeeze. Using backports will probably be easier, but it is up to you.
