I did see something strange with 1.5O or 1.5P on i386.

No softdep or NFS involved.

Netscape started up okay, but if I went into Netscape mail/news,
the window would never come up and the disks would thrash forever.

Whatever the problem was, it was fixed in a later update to 1.5P,
and everything seems to work in 1.5Q.
