I cvsup'd a day after reading this message and rebuilt the world and
kernel.  The uname -a still says BETA6.

However, the BETA6 before this recent cvsup and afterwards both don't
exhibit the crash where the BETA3 I was running did.  In particular,

My mouse basestation (I have the mx900) is a usb hub with a "mouse"
attachment and sometimes a "bluetooth" attachment (currently turned
off).  During boot, the whole hub is detached and under BETA3, the
machine would hang.  It would also hang if I unplugged the mouse
(detaching the hub).

BETA6 is not exhibiting this behaviour.  I don't know when I can cvsup
BETA7 for you.
