Hmm.  I got a SCSI-2 drive, and I've been plagued with "panic: biodone
already" messages, as well as having the ADB problem.  I'm working on
testing a patch for the scsi code today - I'll let y'all know later on if
it works.

BTW, I've found it to be much easier to use the "screen-3.5.2" utility
(found on
etBSD/contrib) as the shell for my personal account.  Then, it starts up
the screen multiplexor as soon as I get logged in, before the ADB can hang.
I haven't yet tried using dt as my shell, but it should work, too.
