Hi Greg; I just pulled this about an hour ago, built it from a make
oldconfig based on a flawlessly running 2.6.35.4.

3 things I call regressions.

1. On rebooting to it, and launching kmail, cpu went to 100% of whatever
core it skipped to on a 4 core amd phenom box with 4G of ram. Normally,
kmail on a restart will check and rebuild its indices, taking maybe 4 or 5
minutes to do this up till now, during that time keyboard/mouse
interactivity lags a split second. This time it was 44 minutes before I
got my machine back. At times the keyboard went dead for minutes at a
time. I even went to the kitchen and got fresh batteries for it, only to
have everything I had typed blind 2 minutes before, show up on screen while
there was no batteries in it.

2. That I think is separate from the login screen, there I had no keyboard
or mouse for a minute, but something finally registered and I was able to
log in then.

3. My usb tree is not fully populated, this has been a frequent problem for
the last year or so, udev often does not wait for responses long enough to
trace a several hubs tall tree to the last branch so I have to crawl under
and unplug the missing stuff later, which is then properly recognized when I
plug it back into the same socket on the same hub. One of my often missing
printers is 4 hubs away in the basement.

Thanks.
