If you've got swap enabled in your Dom0, please compile the little
testprogram included in the bugreport and run it as an ordinary user.
It has crashed all the systems I've tried it on.

If it doesn't crash your system, please write that in the ticket,
because than we need what the difference between your setup, and the
one other have tried.

Best Regards,
