[pre-2.1.37-3] 'Tell mingo' on fire

I recently moved from school back to home for the summer. That means losing
ethernet access and having to revert back to 14.4 PPP (very painful).

I originally had this snippet in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

/usr/sbin/netdate serv1.msu.edu serv2.msu.edu localhost
/sbin/hwclock --adjust
/sbin/hwclock --systohc

This would silently fail under 2.1.36 since my normal ethernet connection
is gone.

Under 2.1.37-pre3, it sets the console on fire with 'tell mingo to convert me'

I've since commented out those commands so I can boot up properly.
I've also commented out the printk so I can use my system normally.
