This has to do with all the 2.2 kernels for alphas. Unfortounately,
we have to wait for the 2.4 for an official fix. There, the problem is
appropriately solved. Even if you do change the stacksize as root, nothing
happens, since the kernel does not seem to see any difference.

Ps. Intel machines have this already fixed in v2.2 kernels... :-(

So, if anybody wants to have hardware sent to them; don't
call me,  but instead write  your own  operating  system. 
It has worked every time for me.
