Subjectan oops in 2.6-test2 (oops)

I've noticed a bug in Linux version 2.6-test2 and I'm able to reproduce it. It
occures while using xmms' "Add directory to playlist". The only module that
was loaded at that time was 'rtc' and the kernel has been compiled with gcc
3.3.1 (20030626 (Debian prerelease)). I have an AMD Athlon XP 1500+, 512MB of
RAM and MSI motherboard with VIA KT133A. I hope that the following ksymoops
output will be helpfull:

ksymoops 2.4.9 on i686 2.6.0-test2. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.6.0-test2/ (default)
-m /usr/src/linux/ (default)

Error (regular_file): read_ksyms stat /proc/ksyms failed
No modules in ksyms, skipping objects
No ksyms, skipping lsmod
