Comment (by archaic at linuxfromscratch.org):

 For more than a week now, with udev-087, linux-, and with the
 modified code that added the "confirm" tests, but without the latest "echo
 -en '*'" change, there has not been a bugreport. I have tested with every
 iteration of the following devices: external HD, USB mouse, USB keyboard,
 PTP2 camera (not mass storage). The same setup as this produced sporadic
 bugreports with udev-086.

 Alex, please advise what further testing you want me to do. Should I
 revert udev or add the "echo -en '*'" snippet, or anything like that? And
 is anyone else testing this?

 Matt, you were getting bugreports, too. What about with the newer kernel
 and udev? Are you still getting them? I will try a new build using the new
 udev_update bootscripts and report back. I also have a thumbdrive I can
 add to the mix. If I get a chance, I might even have time to throw a spare
 SCSI array into my gateway and kick off a build on that to test SCSI
 devices, but no promises at this point.
