Was the kernel oops when dumping core ever resolved?

What was the cause? Is there a patch? A bug tracker ticket?
Using ELDK here, so still running 2.6.24 ...

Kernel oops while duming user core.

I get the following kernel core while a user program I have is dumping
Any DIeas at what to look for? (this is runnign 2.6.24, arch/powerpc on
a 8280)
When runnign the program on 2.6.18 arch/ppc, the program gets a sig 11
and dumps core.
On 2.6.24, I ghet the kernel oops, and then the program hangs sround
forever and is unkillable.
