just as an update.. we found the problem.  (We were actually building BOTH 
2.4.17 and 2.4.18) anyway.. apparently the usage of asmlinkage and FASTCALL in 
the do_signal call in the kernel was corrupting registers/stack (or something 
like that) 2.4.18pre1 apparently fixes that problem.

Anyway, I thought you folks might find that interesting.
