No, I had the same results.

The problem is the 2.6.6 pax patch: It makes intrusive changes to mmap.c, 
so RSBAC cannot find the place to patch. Previous pax versions made much 
smaller changes, so everything patched in smoothly.

I will try to sort this out with the pax authors so that pax and rsbac 
combine well again.
