I got offlist mail pointing that PR out to me....

Okay, so it's supposed to work in 3.1; I'll work on figuring out why it
doesn't.  Offhand, it looks as though stop_boot just kills the shell
running the fsck script, not the shell running /etc/rc - I suspect it
might work if I set rc_fast_and_loose.

I'll dig around some more after work, when I'm at home with my 3.1
