Good call. It is FC4 2.6.14_1656 . Do I need to go back just one revision?
Or is there a specific kernel where this problem popped up?

Thanks so much

If you run FC4 with newest kernel, install an older version, reinstall drbd 
module, and all good... There is already a similar thread according to the 
newest FC4-Kernel.
