3). Old .o files are not removed from
/lib/modules/Rls.XX.XX.XX/ when you compile the Kernel
source and do a 'make modules_install' This is NOT a bug w/
make, but rather a bug in the Makefile.

Furthermore, I believe as a result may cause the
boot-sequence to 'hang' if the user has compiled the
dependency module checker.

If more info is required, please e-mail:

This appears to be a kernel problem ...

This will probably not be changed unless Linus changes it in
the main kernel distribution.
