crash on 2.6.20-16.28

Bug #119253 reported by Felipe Figueiredo
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-source-2.6.20 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.20-16-generic

I experienced some strange behaviours, with X applications randomly crashing, and not being able to kill them (firefox and amarok for instance). Restarting X cleaned the zombie apps as expected, but then I noticed strange kernel messages in the console. After starting a new gnome session, I couldn't also start some applications, like amsn for instance.

Using Feisty on a Pentium D. RAM is fine, as per memtest.

I will attach what appears in kern.log, which recommends to reboot. I did, and everythig is fine since then. I don't know what triggered the crash.

PS: I am only attaching this to the security team in case a regression is in order. Sorry if this is inappropriate.
