Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-09-10 20:45:39 UTC
this is either initscripts, filesystem, or mkinitrd.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-26 15:06:15 UTC
Is this continually reproducible?

Comment 3 Michael A. McLean 2001-09-26 20:19:27 UTC
Yes.  I've got it set up on a machine right now if you want to play with it.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-26 20:42:46 UTC
Will be fixed in 6.40.1-1.
