I'm aware that the kernel release is somewhat ancient in terms of 
drivers and such. I was interested to find out if this was a known issue 
with a known fix. I have a number of machines with identical 
configurations and rolling out new kernel versions across a live system, 
and disrupting it's homogeneity, without knowing if it will fix the 
problem is something I was trying to avoid.
I've started the process of doing a system wide update on one of the 
machines, because I realise that a lot happens between that many kernel 
versions, but the danger of losing a live system and having to rebuild 
is always there. I'll let you know if it fixes the problem.

Thanks,
    Simon...
