SubjectStrange problems with 2.5.17-2.5.19
I am having some problems when running 2.5.17/2.5.18/2.5.19.
This never happend with any 2.4.x kernel.
The problems appear when my computer has been running
for a few hours and I compiled gnome2 or the kernel.
It start with some strange display errors.
Or one time, all qt3-applications did not start.
Segfault. Yesterday, it was nedit which gave me
a segfault everytime I wanted to start it.

One time, with kernel 2.5.17, I got the following mail
from my local scandetd:
From: Scandetd@localhost
To: root@localhost
Subject: Mail notification disabled for a minute.
Date: Fri, 24 May 2002 22:01:58 +0200

Possible TCP port scanning from to,
I've counted -736109024 connections.

First connection was made to 52225 port at Wed Sep 4 06:58:40 1946
Last connection was made to 32 port at Tue Oct 5 09:16:20 1982

Probably it was a SYN scan (402653780 FIN flags and -736100864 SYN flags)
This is very strange, because scandetd has nothing to do with
"Mail notification" and I have no idea, where this subject
comes from. Please also look to the number ob connections
and the date of the first/last connection. VERY strange...

A few seconds after that, I got an oops and nothing
worked any more, even the SysRq-key was not usable.
Here is the output of ksymoops:

I am not getting these oops with 2.5.18 or 2.5.19,
but the problems are still there.

If this could be helpful, I am using debian/woody
with a few packages from sid,
and I have one AMD Duron processor and a board with
a VIA-chipset.

I hope I didn't forget to mention something and
that this can be helpful.
