    I saw/see a lot of those messages on 2.2.18pre19 as well. I hacked the
    kernel to show the process in question, and it's always xmms:

    LDT allocated for cloned task (pid=20272; count=3)!

    20272 pts/10 RN 186:01 xmms

    And I do have the xmms-avi plugin in the plugin directory. So if you find a
    bug/fix to 2.4, could you please check 2.2 as well? (I'm afraid I'm not
    nearly clueful enough.)

    Are these messages serious anyway?
