Thanks for replying.
No you didn't miss anything but I'm one of those rare birds who want to 
know why an error occurs before continuing.
There are other kernel problems with Karmic I have at the moment so 
upgrading is maybe the most sensible way. However, why not Maverick?
Well, this is my main station and I cannot miss it (sure everything is 
daily backed up using backuppc) for a few hours and Maverick (omen est 
nomen??) is not stable yet. Moreover, I generally prefer LTS and the 
problems with Karmic ( in the beginning) are still in my memory.
But if I don't find an explanation, I will upgrade to Lucid.
