(uh, reconfig'ing the kernel shouldn't clobber the number, unless you
rm -rf the kernel compile dir or remove the version stamp file...)

it'd be interesting to know.
the other programs which are crashing _aren't_ related to the kvm db
stuff. changing the kvm db stuff shouldn't make a diff for them.
which indicates to me that you're running into some other bug.
(However, I don't see how it could be 'reaper-related', either, except
by luck, at this point...)
