Maybe. Fedora has very current kernels (I'm currently running 3.6.9, and
Greg K-H released 3.6.10 overnight so I shall expect another update
soon) and Linus and co are busy messing about with the VM code, they've
just reverted a big change that wasn't ready for prime time in 3.7, so
it's not impossible that this is related to recent kernels.
I'll keep you informed.
