it *appears* that this is the problem:
in short, with the hand-rolled 3.3.0-rc7 kernel i built for my 64-bit
11.10 (fully-updated) system, when i booted into recovery mode, i was
seeing the following (reproduced manually, forgive typoes):
Begin: Running /scripts/init-bottom ...
... a few lines describing recognized USB devices
udevd: timeout: killing 'watershed sh -c ' /sbin/lvm vgscan ;
/sbin/lvm vgchange -a y''
... terminated by signal 9 (Killed)
hostname start/running, process 348
cnosole-setup start/running, process 350
Couldn't find whiptail, starting root shell instead of recovery mcenu
bash: groups: command not found
i didn't notice this earlier since i never gave enough time for the
timeout to occur. grrrrrrrr.
so based on what i'm reading at that bugs page, i want to upgrade my
udev package to the one in oneiric-proposed. never installed from
oneiric-proposed before, guess i better read how unless someone has a
