I can confirm that I'm seeing a similar problem.  With -CURRENT as of
around midday GMT today any attempts to mount an MDMFS /tmp or run any
command (such as vi or mergemaster) all hang *in single user mode only*.
If I boot all the way through to multi-user then everything works just

With the MDMFS /tmp the unit gets created, but it appears to hang after

This is happening under VMWare, I haven't tried a "real" PC yet (and
don't plan to until the VMWare box works).  However I'm happy to play
with the VMWare box if people can tell me what they want done.
