Kernel VM bug causing apt cache corruption (15.01.2007)

There's a bug in some recent kernel versions ( - 2.6.19 or thereabouts) causing corruption in apt's package cache. It causes apt to crash with segmentation fault in some circumstances, on some systems this happens more often than on others due to different memory usage patterns. More details about the bug can be found in this LWN article. The fix is to upgrade (or downgrade) you kernel to unaffected version, or if that's not possible for whatever reason there's a bandaid patch that helps avoiding crashing attached in this bug report.
