Could this be related to http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10273 ?
Quite likely. #10273 was introduced in 2.6.23 and fixed in 220.127.116.11.
To verify you could apply the patch provided by David Miller
to your 2.6.24 kernel or alternatively you could upgrade to Lenny,
which is based on 2.6.26 and won't change very much any more, since
the release is close.
