base system startup scripts hanging

Hi all,

This is on FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE FreeBSD  
10.2-RELEASE #0 r286666: Wed Aug 12 15:26:37 UTC 2015      
root at  amd64

Two base system startup scripts are hanging at startup. These are  
cleanvar and mountcritremote. I use Ctrl/C to abort each script and  
allow the startup to continue; after this, the system seems fine. The  
problem appeared after I added two lines (yes, I think they're the  
last ones) to /etc/fstab:

# Device	Mountpoint	FStype	Options	Dump	Pass#
/dev/ada0p2	/		ufs	rw	1	1
/dev/ada0p3	none		swap	sw	0	0
linproc	/compat/linux/proc	linprocfs rw,late 0	0
linsys	/usr/compat/linux/sys	linsysfs rw,late 0	0
lindev	/usr/compat/linux/dev	devfs	rw,late	0	0
fdesc	/dev/fd			fdescfs	rw,late	0	0
proc	/proc			procfs	rw,late	0	0

I'm not remembering which port required them but I've been messing  
with webcam stuff. I don't understand shell well enough to see what  
the problem in cleanvar might be. And since I don't have any nfs (or  
any other remote file systems) I'm baffled that mountcritremote is a  

Any ideas?
