Steve,

I've been trying for a while to reproduce this with t-o-t kernels from the
development tree and haven't had much success. Among the possiblities you
mentioned earlier, I'm starting to think that its something localized to 
your workarea ?

Has anyone else seen this lilo weirdness with the latest kernels?

Thanks,
-Chait.
