Interesting - that implies that the trigger is something outside
the loader code itself. I guess you could try doing a full buildworld
using sources from various dates to narrow it down, but that's a
fair bit of work...

Actually, a quicker way would be to get copies of /boot/loader
from the various snapshot directories at


to see roughly when the problem appeared.

>PS: how to debug loader?

It's not particularily easy... You can of course add printf() and
delay() calls at various places to see how far it gets before
