liquorix kernel 2.6.36-2.dmz.2 686 icedove crash


I'm using Squeeze and icedove and iceweasel and I've installed the package linux-image-2.6.36-2.dmz.2-liquorix-686. It works fine on my Dell 1521 Inspiron laptop with only one exception. If I'm surfing the web or checking my mail via a wired internet connection I'm fine... if I'm surfing the web or checking my mail via a wifi connection everything is fine... but if I happen to forget to connect to a wifi connection, and I'm in a situation where a wired connection is not available, I can start iceweasel (it doesn't do anything constructive), but checking my mail with icedove (simply starting the program) crashes my computer.

If I boot up with the 2.6.32-5 kernel, the one that's in the regular debian repository, I can not duplicate the crash. Somewhere I read that the liquorix kernels are optimized for a desktop computer. Is this my problem? Is it something else?

During the crash my screen goes to a text console and I see syslogd messages on the screen -- which I cannot reproduce here.

Does this occur with an earlier version of the liquorix kernel?

I tried the liquorix kernel '2.6.36-0.dmz.14-liquorix-686' and I couldn't get it to crash. Then I downloaded and tried the liquorix kernel labled '2.6.36-2.dmz.5-liquorix-686' and I couldn't get it to crash. I don't have another liquorix kernel to try, but I think the problem is solved. Thanks for the help. Still I'm wondering why it worked (or didn't work).

Odd. I don't use liquorix so I have no idea, but if it happens again, just do some more kernel-hopping.
