Interesting!  Maybe I should try that.


Have you replaced your bootstrap recently?  It occurs to me that I started
having this problem on a "new" system - which is to say, one on which I
recently reinstalled.  With a new bootstrap.  It was using the 1.4 bootstrap
loader for a long time... now it's 1.5W.
