Hmmm.... I think that readprofile isn't using the right When
that happens to me, I've usually forgotten to update the symlink. The
default map file used is either /usr/src/linux/ or

Quick check: readprofile -m /boot/system.map_for_my_kernel
If that is the problem, this should print some useful results.
