I have...2.6 has a memory leak in its routing code and I had boxes that 
would hit this problem...finally fixed in 2.6.11 but it took quite a 
long time (six months IIRC) before the network code guys figured it out. 
Said fix was then backported to RHEL4 kernels.

Then there was this odd performance issue which I cannot remember with 
RHEL4 kernels but was fixed in the RHEL4.4 update.
