Hi all

Some update I have noticed: 
When I download a big tarfile, untar it, remove tarfile, reboot. 
One of the initscripts does a remount and there it hangs again for some 30-60 seconds.
This is our typical SW upgrade senario so it is a bit annoying. 

Am I the only one seeing this?
I am running Monta Vistas HHL 2.0 MPC8xx kernel(2.4.2 based). Could
this problem be local to the HHL kernel or is it a JFFS2 thing?

I am using JFFS2 CVS from around October 23
