Well, I don't know. I'd guess there'd *have* to be some correlation, but 
we're not gathering enough information to see the pattern. ie: which 
BIOS version, what exact BIOS options are set, what processor/speed, 
what memory, what exact model of hard disk... We just may not have a big 
enough sample size. Even in my case the crashes aren't predictable in 
nature - 2.4.4 passed my bonnie test the first time, making me think the 
problem was introduced in 2.4.5, and only failed later in normal usage - 
next time I tested it it failed in the first minute or so. *Most* of the 
time failures occur during the bonnie test, but at all sorts of random 
times during the test.

<redundant>as long as you're sure you do have DMA enabled that is - SuSE 
at least leaves it disabled by default, under which conditions all 
kernels are stable for me</redundant>
