I've had a stock RH9 do it to me on occasion.  I think the original rpm with RH9
might have a bug or two. Updating the system via 'apt-get dist-upgrade', or
downloading the updated rpm from a mirror seemed to cure reoccurences.

I'd never lay one version of redhat on top of another...that's asking for
trouble with a big T.

good luck.
