It's not as easy as doing a single run. It occurs "often" but not
predictably. Some runs will succeed and others will trigger it, so I
can't reliably tell whether it's been prevented. At the very least
several attempts need to be made. I'd just apply it since it's
apparently correct from the audit and I'll try to catch you again when
it shows up again (like earlier today). Unfortunately that test run was
on a freshly improvised tree not including this fix. I've included it
there now and will just have to remember it for the new tree coming up
(2.5.32-mm4 of course). I had hoped the backtraces would be more helpful,
and that someone might know what they waited for that had never happened.

I only get this once out of 10 or 20 boots, so turnaround is slow. =(
I did a bunch of boots with it +2.5.32-mm1 but don't remember the results.
