I'm tempted to go ahead and try 2.6.11, but haven't yet.

Please do. If 2.6.11 works and you have any VIA devices,
please also try the 2.6.12 patch from earlier in the thread
and see whether that helps.

it's a via motherboard, so yes, i'll be trying that patch if 2.6.11 does work. It seems to make sense to try the patch first, but i had already removed the 2.6.12 trees i had compiled before that patch was posted. It takes a while for this computer to compile the kernels so i'll report back tonight ... in any case, if the patch doesn't work, i'll move up the rc for 2.6.12 until the problem occurs, figure out what happened with the 8139 drivers in that patchset and hopefully see a fix. But first, a concert to goto.

has anyone had their problem fixed by the patch to 2.6.12?
