If 'uname' is (for example) an alias in bashrc it might return something
other than the system's /bin/uname does.

hmmm... I just checked download.opensuse.org and AFAICT the kernel shipped
with 11.1 was 

kernel-default-2.6.27.7-9.1.i586.rpm

Where do all those old directories come from?

System was upgraded from what... 9.3?
