The reason why we are all using Ubuntu is probably because we are testing the bleeding edge kernel on the in-development version of Ubuntu. We are trying to get these problems resolved before its release so the end-users will not have the same problem when it is released. That would probably magnify the problem about 100 times.
If you would like, I could try booting up another cutting-edge distribution that is using the 2.6.20 kernel.
