Thanks for that Jeroen,

You have missed a bit of the conversation -- we have *NOT* had any
problems with the MD5 patch either, we have been using it for over a
year without problems. The problems are only arising when we test a very
new (unstable) version of Quagga (0.99.1) with work queuing implemented
and not with vanilla Quagga. The observation that we are using MD5 was
really just saying, that could be a factor in why we see the problem and
other people don't.

Thanks anyway for your comments,

So am I. I have had no kernel panics since the aprox. 1,5 year I'm 
running md5.

PS, I'm not using vanilla kernel! (Fedora Core 3 kernel 2.6.10-1.741_FC3

with md5 patch, plus a route-cache mem-leak patch) I haven't had any 
problems with previous fedora kernels either..
