The kernel update that wasn't
I just did my regular monthly update using synaptic and a new kernel got installed. The funny thing is, it had the same version number as my existing kernel as shown by uname -r : 2.6.26-1.
Why does this happen?"I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

I have never seen that happen, there should be a least a minor version number changed.

A few thoughts -- I think the update referenced 2.6.26-13, which seems like a minor-minor change. For example, here is a note from apt-get for a 64-bit server which I have not yet updated:
