	The very first thing I would try is a different
distribution.  Since you've gone off the reservation a bit by
running Gentoo, it will be hard to replicate the issue most
likely.  Which isn't to dissuade you from running Gentoo.  But,
it is a rather "do it yourself" approach where you can run into
all sorts of issues like this.  There is something to be said for
the exposure that the larger distributions get, especially using
already compiled, standard packages for everyone.  That just
means a lot more people experience problems quicker, so bugs will
most likely be fixed sooner than a more roll your own system like

	Having said that, a Google search reveals others having
similar issues with Gentoo lately:

I'd say you've hit a common bug like these other people.
