(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. --Mark
