[2.4.2-ac5] X (4.0.1) crashes

Yesterday I've upgraded my 2.4.2 kernel to ac5, because loop-device
seems not to work in plain 2.4.2. But now my X-server crashes.

When I start with startx, X comes up, gnome starts, sawfish starts. Then
the system freezes. Even SysRQ-keys don't work.

I use XFree86 4.0.1 with nvidia-drivers 0.96.

I can't find anything about the crash in the logs, even the output from
X doesn't get written to disk.

Is this a known problem?

I'm going back to vanilla 2.4.2 for now. Is there another way to get
loop to work?
