Confirmed.  The problem does seem to be the kernel.  With a May 19, 
kernel it is working perfectly.  That is why none of this made any 
since and I assumed that I had made a mistake compiling php5 and pear 
but it became more wierd when php4 and pear had the same symptoms and 
then two machines that had worked didn't and finally a machine that 
worked this morning didn't after shutdown -r.

The question no is, "Now what do I do?"
