They all...look similar, but I've never written them down so I'm not
sure.  It starts with a "order-0 allocation failure" or so, then
programs start failing to allocate memory, too.  I'll write it down next
time it happens (I've taken to just shutting down when moving it, since
this happens so often).

On most resumes.

I do a dist-upgrade against sid every few days, but I haven't changed
the kernel in weeks.  Hm...I'm using your 2.6.7-rc3 pmdisk patch against
2.6.7 itself, maybe I should just update to your 2.6.7 one and 2.6.8-rcX
before bothering you further...
