Ah, by the way, I'm having this problem for some time, too. E.g., sendmail
complains incessantly on console that it can't write to /dev/null, and some
other userspace programs can't work as supposed of the same reason (I don't
remember which though).
Happens with every installation of 1.2.0-RELEASE and 1.3.x-DEVELOPMENT. Three
boxes are affected.
The only common thing I see there is installing with 1.2.0 installer which I
throw into iso's of 1.3.x, too.
