I admit the hardware is a little bit old. But at the moment
_everything_ is messed up almost at once. That's too much.

Today I began trying to reproduce the problem by creating
a USB stick with 11.0. I started saying this:

  # dd if=/dev/zero of=usbstick.img bs=1M count=7552

And yet, the system froze again!

I'll report what happened as soon as -- and if -- the USB
stick yields results.
