If the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL doesn't help, try disabling both SMP and 
hyperthreading at the same time. I think that's your next most likely fix.

Just a note: I've had big, beefy servers die with SIG11 on Linux before 
(or course, that was back when a dual athlon 1GHz was considered 'beefy' 
:). Anyway, we tried everything, including hiring BEA consultants for a 
bazillion dollars per hour to help us tune both Weblogic and our VM.

It turned out to be bad hardware. We had six identical machines and two 
of 'em kept crapping out. They just sucked. The only solution was to 
send them back to the manufacturer and ask for more. It turns out that 
not only did those two (production!) machines suck, but two QA machines 
and one dev machine (all the same) sucked, too. They all died when we 
put them under high load. They seemed to do okay under development load 
(about zero).

I'll never buy a machine from "Penguin Computing" again.

Just wanted to mention that sometimes it's not the software's fault. Do 
you have other similar machines that you can try this on?
