I'm back to having no idea... Also no idea why it worked for that one
guy. Possibly it is a kernel bug only on some machines? That's even more
insidious. Right now, the situation makes no sense at all, even less
than it did before...

A summary:

* SILO 1.3.2 does not work with more machines than 1.4.5 breaks
* rootfstype=ext2 fixed it for one person, indicating corruption
  of the initrd by the FS checks
* Ben's kernel patch did not help.

so no rhyme or reason wrt fixes.
