Subjectloopback broken in 1.99.7
Date
The loopback device in 1.99.7 puts processes who attempt to close it into a
coma (using mount-2.5j). It's possible to use losetup to get status on it
and to attach a file to it, and it's possible to read the data on the other
end of it, but once anything tries to close it, the process freezes and
hangs forever in a state like (after the attached xterm is killed off)

9311 ? DW 0:00 (losetup)

Is it my breath?
