When you say it is "broken" - what is this relative to?
Did you have another kernel where you precise config worked?
The only changes that have made it in for RED are in post 2.6.14; other
than that all should work great as ever before.
could you try the latest iproute2 posted last few days by Stephen and
see if your problem persists?
Also try using something simpler than HTB like prio qdisc to help in
debugging things for you?
Can you look at examples directory and use some of the tricks used
