Same to me (PW433a)

But I discovered another strange problem (don't know, if this happens with
another kernel version):

alpha:~# cat /proc/srm_environment/named_variables/auto_action
alpha:~# echo "BOOT" > /proc/srm_environment/named_variables/auto_action

the machine doesn't come back to the prompt; on the serial terminal I get this:

bad value - valid selections:

in an non-stopping loop; ssh'ing to that machine is no longer possible.
Pinging it works, but needs a lot of time for responding (60ms vs usually

Anyone who can confirm this?
