Don't ask me HOW this happened, I just know I was able to recreate it

I was attempting to install a 100BaseT PCI Intel EEPRO card I later found
out was bad.

When kudzu tried to install the card, it somehow corrupted ld.so.cache such
that any program linked with shared libraries would die with an assertion

To recover, I had to reset the machine, boot "linux single" and re-run
ldconfig by hand.

While this is a severe bug, I'm giving it low severity as if it were common
I suspect it would have already been reported here...
