I've noticed "time-outs-from-the-game" with os40 that I had not 
noticed before.  For instance, when I boot with the check game key, 
the boot process simply stops for more than 50 seconds (just after a 
message about rtc) before continuing.  Sometimes quite trivial 
commands just stop for a noticeable number of seconds (garbage 
collection?).  And once when I was editing in 'vi', it took about 
two seconds between a keypress, and the character appearing on the 

Also, shutdown seems to remove the directory from /media on which a 
removable volume is mounted.  [Before os42, shutdown would remove 
such a directory if it was created by automount, but *not* if it had 
been manually created by the user.]  The effect is that my 
"permanent" SD card is no longer being mounted when I boot, even 
though I have an entry for it in /etc/fstab
