Oh boy.  Arrigo, thanks for having patience.  We've had a lot of
problems with Toshibas.  I'm not sure why.  I want it fixed.  This has
even bit RMS!  Toshibas are the most widely sold laptops.

Anyone on the boot-floppies or testing list have a clue?
Who's the culprit?  SYSLINUX?  The kernel image?
