	I'm not using DevFS, and I've had suing from root to someone
else fail for reasons that also seem to involve ptys.  Also, using the
loop device crashed every program that tried to access files on the
mounted filesystem caused evil looking kernel messages about
dereferencing NULL pointers and made everything unstable until I
rebooted.

	I think it's back to 2.4.3 for me.  :-(

Have fun (if at all possible),
