  2.4.26 isn't certified to work by me... I've not tried anything newer
than 2.4.20, I think. I had a lot of problems with the 2.4.20+ UML
kernels. Specifically, UML has a habit of just freezing/dying in certain
circumstances (such as starting/stopping it), and it got a lot worse
after 2.4.19. 
  Please use *LINUS* 2.4.19 plus uml patch 47.

  No, ptproxy is a the "ptrace proxy". It permits one to run gdb on the
kernel. GDB needs to use ptrace, and UML needs to use ptrace (on
itself). Thus a problem in TT mode.

  You can try turning that off.
