This line is at #1417 in my mm/page_alloc.c, (in 2.6.29-rc7) but I have added
it, and a rebuild is in progress. I'll post again if I see it again. The
machine is still up, and functioning apparently only semi-normally ATM. I
don't know it its related, but setroubleshoot's daemon is also exiting
frequently. And can't be restarted with the 'service' utility. Off to reboot
next.

Thanks David.
