I have a slackware initrd (minix) which is booting fine with 2.4.10
but fails to boot with 2.4.12 and later (same .config, same bootloader,
same hardware, same AC voltage in the wall outlet, time of day differs by
1 minute), so it might be true :-)

I have a report of romfs initrd with same symptoms. ext2 initrds OTOH
boots fine.
