Thanks, that seems to have fixed it. There's something else I'm curious about

Before, when I was having this problem, I would check mem usage, and there would
be about 5MB of physical memory marked for "buffers" (I assume 4MB for ram0).

Now, using an identical kernel configuration, an identical module set loaded,
and a roughly identical process table, there's about 18MB of memory marked for

Sorry to be a bother, but I can't help wondering if this patch might have gotten
rid of one problem and replaced it with another? Or maybe I'm missing some
other detail here...
