Kernel oops on Lenny, when opening tabs in Firefox



The Firefox part might be a coincidence, of course.

In an rxvt, I see:

Oops: 0000 [1] SMP

Then a few seconds later I get:

CR2: 0000000000005a

In syslog, I find this:

After this event, the mouse will still move in X, but the keyboard is ignored
(including Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and Ctrl-Alt-F1). Program menus (e.g. Firefox)
still work, but GNOME's own menus don't. I have to power off to shut down.

System is an HP DV6100 series using a Turion 64. Kernel version is
linux-image-2.6.24-1-amd64. Modules are listed in the log above.

Any suggestions? Maybe just upgrade to 2.6.25?
