Something to do with the vendor/distro.  (I assume some kind of build number 
for QA.)  I use Yellow Dog Linux (YDL).  On a box I have available at work 
(CentOS, based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux), the uname -r is 
"2.6.18-53.1.14.el5" (note the "EL" toward the end).  YDL is also based on 
RH/CentOS.  Perhaps this extra version info is peculiar to RH-derived Linuxen?  
My Ubuntu box is packed up in preparation to move, but maybe someone could 
check some other Linux flavors?
