I asked the same question Dec 11 as I encountered the same issue.
A number of people responded in private email, suggesting that the kernel
was not synchronized properly with the userland utilities. I doubted that,
as I always rebuild and install world when I rebuild a kernel.
In the last month, I have cvsup'ed and rebuilt both the kernel + world at
least a dozen times since that time. The problem still exists.
My machine is a Dual Pentium Pro with a basically-stock SMP kernel, except
that I have ULE enabled.
