You could say what messages appeared or what other behaviour you
observed.  You could say what version of NetBSD you are running
(if -current then the date/time you checked it out from CVS).  In
fact, you do say those things below, though you omitted them from
your earlier report.

The symptoms do sound very similar to the /bin/sh problem of about
a week ago.  Do you have revision 1.98 of src/bin/sh/eval.c? If
not, then please update.  If you do have a /bin/sh built from the
latest sources, then please try to use "echo" or "set -x" in
strategic places in /etc/rc to try to figure out how far it gets
before breaking.
