I tryed to do a full backup of my hard drive lastnight.  I executed "tar cv"
and I watched the list of files as they were backed up.  I noticed that
/kern/root/ is ?? to /.  Its not a soft link.  I don't know what it is but it
causes tar to do is recurse indefinatley. ie /kern/root/kern/root ...  I tryed
rm -fr root from /kern.  It didn't do anything.  

I'm stumped. Is this a feature or a bug. (What's the difference?)

Any suggestions are welcome.
