nForce3 is a common factor. Are you using a 64 bit kernel?
Note that I have seen the same behaviour with:
* 2.6.12 kernel under SuSE OSS 10.0 with linux-dvb code compiled from 
the repository source from both before and after the move to a common 
tree incorporating all the dvb stuff
* 2.6.15 kernel under gentoo
* 2.6.16 kernel under gentoo
all in 64 bit mode. I have not tried 32 bit mode.
