It's a kernel security patch that disallows, among others, execution of code 
on the stack. Although it's roughly comparable to exec-shield, it goes 
farther than that.

I don't think that a UML kernel without the PaX patches would make much sense 
in tracking down that problem. We don't have any development machines online 
right now but could offer one for a few days if you think it would help. You 
could use the host kernel for tests, since the KLIPS part in those kernels is 
already at 2.3.0 or 2.3.1.

with best regards,
