 When I was reporting this, I was trying to make live CD that runs
 off cd9660 + tmpfs + union mount for r/w (and possibility to dump
 the tmpfs contents into a file at "shutdown" time). I gave up on
 this quickly after running into problems and problems with union-fs
 (locking etc. ... the union fs is just broken).
 I don't run NetBSD-current any longer (and, due to postinstall
 issues, won't go to -current while I'm on netbsd-5). I'd ask someone
 who is tracking -current to simply try the How-To-Repeat (blocks
 1,2 and 4) note I jotted down and see if it's still complaining.
