Thanks for the (implied) compliment!
Well, consider this problem intermittent no longer, the new busybox-cvs
didn't help a bit... :-( I am able to reproduce this both with the
original images I tried (2003-06-02), and with today's (2003-06-04).
Any ideas on how to proceed? Do we need a gdb-udeb?
Also, should I file a bug? If so, against which package? busybox-cvs?
