I posted this problem earlier.  The problem lies in using earlier 
versions of somethings on your host system.  For example, I was using 
Debian woody 2.2.20 (kernel), and the stable versions of all packages. 
I upgraded to using Debian sarge (2.4.26 kernel) and the "testing" 
branch releases of all packages.

The solution (at least the one I'll give you because it was given to me 
:) is to upgrade your host.
