Just to clarify a bit, 1.6.6pre1 is needed to support a kernel that
has user namespaces enabled, which is true for debian's (and
ubuntu's?) recent 3.6.12 kernels but not necessarily for kernels in
other distributions.  For instance you don't need the user namespace
support if you are running a fedora 19 system with a 3.12 kernel.
