Modules stays loaded in 'initializing state', can not be removed.
Still present in RC1.
What machine, RH release if any and kernel?
I think this was originally filed against a 7.0beta version. I can retest with
7.1RC1 if you'd like.
(going through cleaning up/tidying up old bugs)
Is this still true of the Gold ISO images?
I'm making an assumption here that you're using a Nautilus box with an AGP card
of some sort as thats the only alpha I'm aware of that has an AGP slot on it
