2.6.0-test7 preempt causes mozilla, perl and g++ to
fail randomly (seldom) on load.
I tried PREEMPT for some time with 2.6 kernels and got
random application crashes (2.5.4x was much worse).
After some time (and since test9 was called production

hardware showed to work well with 2.4), turned it off
and 2.6.0-test9 is rock solid.

during mozilla compilation) but I would not trust
valuable data to 2.6 preempt any more. No oops, no
hang, just strange random errors from the applications
[I found no really matching category/group - it's a
Summary: PREEMPT seems not ready for general use (at
