I was swamped with trying to get rawhide in shape for test2.

I wanted it to simmer for at least a day due to the xen update
that got merged into cvs during the above time period.
Ideally, an update should have gone out fixing just the security bug,
but branching cvs, and doing another rebuild would have added at least
a day.

There's another vulnerability that has been announced today, and
another -stable got pushed out this evening.  However there's some
concern that it breaks HAL, I'll investigate further in the morning,
and see if I can get something out tomorrow evening before I disappear
for a day whilst travelling to kernel summit/OLS.
