I noticed the symbols, I just wasnt sure if "running current" meant
just the kernel or the userland too.

It sounded like the first reboot after installing -current failed; at
that point you should be running a -current kernel and the earlier
(1.3, 1.3.1, older -current) userland.

mm, I make a point of doing an fsck -f of a couple of partitions
when I upgrade a kernel...
