Default Centos 5.7 - bridging firewall crash (only since the update) - dmesg output included - Trying to vfree() nonexistent vm area (ffffffff885d9000) ....

Hi.

We have several Centos 5 firewalls in our company - they are all in
bridging mode.

We updated them to the latest Centos 5.x last night.

4 hours later there was a crash.. (previously it had never crashed - and
had been running for at least 1.5 yrs)

The crash occurred when someone added a rule, after rebooting it was fine -
the thing is it can't have been a bad rule as the first thing the server
does is load the firewall (same) rules..

In /var/log/messages I can see:-
