Hmm, and I noticed something similar for the hpcarm port, using sources
from the last weekend.

I effectively can only boot in single user mode (from hpcboot.exe), but
even then the system locks hard after 5 minutes or so.
Or if I execute "ps" it freezes immediately, I then have to remove the
rechargeable battery of the HP Jornada 720 I'm using.

And if I try to boot normally it crashes before it gets to login; exactly
it crashes after mounting the root file system while going through rc.

1.6ZG works just fine (sources from the 17th).
