Confirmed that it is not hard drive vs CDROM related, 1.2b3 just locked 
when booting from a CDROM.

I'm also seeing some possibly unrelated problems, a number of TCP 
connections where the server sent data, but the client (behind m0n0wall) 
never received it.  Unfortunately the client is dumb about timing out 
(it doesn't ever timeout, I have to kick it), so this has been rather 
annoying -- I can't prove it's m0n0wall related, but if the problem goes 
away when I go back to 1.2b2 (in about 5 minutes) then I'll officially 
blame m0n0wall too.

All that being said, yes I am running a beta in a production 
environment.  Yes I know the risks, yes I know that's a bad idea, no I'm 
not angry/annoyed/whatever, and I'd once again like to thank Manuel (And 
everybody else) for such an awesome product.

They call it "PMS" because "Mad Cow Disease" was already taken
