I do not have the kernel sources installed, and the kernel I'm
using was not BUILT with any changes.  It is 2.6.8-1.521.  It
isn't the one from Linuxant.  (They don't have one for this
kernel version.  Maybe they're waiting to see whether this
workaround works for everyone.)  I don't know what the workaround
does or how to find out.  My hunch is that it does somehow change
the stack size, but not by changing the kernel source and

So I don't know how to find out.
