User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
udev simply fails to start. If I try to go to runlevel 1 and replace the 50-xxx udev rules file, then it starts but I have other problems.

The effect is to loose tty0 and then not be able to startx etc...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
it's since version 169

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just boot with the new devel packages updated through yum and devel repos

Actual Results:  Booting is problematic at best. I'm writing this from my windows partition.

Expected Results:  Normal boot

Steps to pinpoint the problem:
1. move away /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules
2. add the original rule lines back to /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules 
3. see which line causes your problems

1. make a backup of /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules
2. remove lines from the end of /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules until it boots
3. report the lines, which cause your problem
