hrmph, we've yet to do a release where some broken module hasn't caused this.
usually I ask the reporter to modify /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit so that the
load_module() function has a
just before the modprobe line.
sometimes this shows us the bogus module, sometimes it makes the problem hide.
Lets hope your case is the former..
I installed a more recent build of Rawhide and this problem no longer occurs.
