your box is tainted, try to reproduce without.

I just crashed with an untainted, unmodified 2.6.26-1-amd64 (2.6.26-5) kernel.
The only difference was that caps lock didn't blink -- the wireless icon did
instead. The computer couldn't be reached in any way. No input devices
responded and when I tried to ssh and ping from another computer, my T61p was
unreachable. The crash happened while sending a few mails with large
attachments.

Doing a simple google search for "T61p crash caps lock" shows that this seems
to be a pretty widespread problem that's been around for some time. For me, it
makes my computer pretty much useless, as I can't afford to have random crashes
while working.

Could I maybe solve this by buying some other (insertable) wireless network
card that uses other kernel modules?
