I don't know what is your problem, but if you change Fedora Kernel with
a standard kernel you will probably get troubles:

more detailled answer by Jeff <[email protected]>:

The key one being NPTL support.  Dropping in a kernel which does not
support NPTL can cause all kinds of headaches.  I ran in this mode for
a short while for various reasons.  Mozilla, OpenOffice, and WINE
consistently wedged.  Presumably this happened because the Fedora versions
actually relied upon Posix compliant things like thread signal delivery
and if you drop in an old kernel you get the old non-compliant signal
delivery behavior.

So, patch kernel with NPTL.
