Why doesn't the loop module cause /dev/loop* device node creation at
load time?  E.g. I have in /etc/modprobe.conf:

options loop max_loop=128

and /etc/fstab I have many of these:

/iso/FC3-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/heidelberg-i386-DVD iso9660 ro,loop=/dev/loop59,nosuid,nodev 0 0

Shouldn't rc.sysinit's "mount -a" cause all the loop devices to be
created automatically?

It seems to not work at boot time, but later a manual "mount -a" does 
create the devices...
