Okay - I'm going to take a shot at repeating this on my machine. I don't
generally use NFS, so I wouldn't get bitten here.

I'm not seeing the problem with console output though. I'm not quite sure
how to tickle that one.

I certainly agree. The only comment about the signals is that I thought
that the same signals mess-up could occur on both the original kmod AND
the daemonless kmod on Alphas. So I'm not exactly sure if this is a
problem with kmod, or some weird issue on the Alpha.

We do need to take a look at this.
