    Mmm, this looks very common. What is the `intended' way to handle this?

    vuescan works on 2.6.7 and dumps core on 2.6.7-mm2 when doing memory
    intense stuff like scanning, previewing or some other things.

    I will try the setarch prog from Andrew after I have rebooted into mm2
    (ATM scanning is in process).

    Best wishes
