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.
