Thanks for the hint. backports.org doesn't contain a 2.6.26 and AFAIK lenny 
will ship with 2.6.26 as well, thus I'd like to try that one before doing a 
backport of 2.6.27 from sid myself. Thus I hope the issue that is triggered 
on those servers is fixed with 2.6.26 or some prior kernel since 2.6.21 
already. If not, we will consider backporting 2.6.27.

At least on my notebook I didn't have any issues so far with any kernel since 
2.6.17.7. But even with TuxOnIce it doesn't have uptimes of 100 days or more, 
since I compile a new kernel for it once in a while.
