	Hello folks.  I have a 486/50 on which I'm installing NetBSD 1.2G
(built as of the tar files of August 3, 1997).  This machine has an old
Adaptec 1542 in it which has worked flawlessly from NetBSD 0.8 to today.
Unfortunately, now if I do a shutdown -fr on the machine, it never makes it
back up.  If I hit the reset button, it comes up just fine.  The probes
stop after the SCSI devices probe, and before the com ports appear.  Com2
is an internal modem which looks like a 16450 UART.  Any ideas on what has
changed between 1.2 and 1.2G which might causee this behavior?  

Thanks for any thoughts.
