I'm using the released version - 2.6.5-1.358

I forgot to mention that if I do a ctl-alt-del at the point
where it hangs, it will reboot successfully.  Normally I'd 
simply ignore this but I'm planning a very large deployment
in a remote location so I can't tolerate this behavior.

Also, if I configure the system with a single CPU and disable
hyperthreading, it reboots just fine with a soft reboot.
If I add a second CPU or enable hyperthreading, it fails on
reboot.
