Hello Nathan,

as far as I can see the fix for kernel bug #6757 has not yet made it in a 
stable kernel release upto 2.6.17.6 and thus should manually be applied:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6757

It probably doesn't happen for lots of people but I would still apply that 
patch unless it is finally put into a stable point release.
