It also happens here. I've noticed this behaviour since early 2.5 or so.

This is what's been bugging me the most. I suppose you are experiencing
a persistent oops early at boot time and it happens exactly the same way
here. The last kernel that worked fine for me wrt ACPI was 2.5.69 and I
think that something on the acpi-20030619 patch broke it (which
unfortunately the latest acpi update [acpi-20030714] didn't fix). I
haven't narrowed it down to a specific kernel but will do soon and will
report back on it.

Could you please pass your oops through ksymoops and post the output?
I'd do it myself but right now I lack the hardware to do so.

I didn't notice any of this, even if I didn't make intensive use of it
with this kernel yet.

Same here. Exactly the two major problems you describe are the very
things that bug me aswell.

Btw, for me it doesn't happen on a thinkpad, it's a Fujitsu Siemens
