device-mapper-multipath-0.4.7-12.el5_1.2 on my RHEL 5.1 root device multipathed
host and rebooted, but the host freeze is still reproducible during faults. As
suggested by Kiyoshi, I ran the attached script i.e. test.sh to trigger the
freeze (the freeze is also reproducible while running FC path faults on the SAN
I don't see any prio callout binaries in /var/cache/multipathd/ (if that was

428338). I'm going to close this as a dupe of the original 5.2 issue.
