OK, did that ...

Then a zypper up

I opted for zypper up, but the kernel was in the list of packages NOT to be
upgraded. :(

(or zypper up -t
package) will grab the new kernel (I can't recall when zypper up defaulted
to package instead of patch...)

Should I have done "zypper up kernel"?

Let us know how 2.6.36 works for you.

I will when I get there ;)
