I still have this problem with the latest balsa-1.1.2, but I have
noticed some additional conditions.  I only see the problem when
running a SMP kernel on a dual pentium.  When I run the same kernel
in nosmp mode I don't experience this locking up at all.  So I
guess it must be some kind of thread race condition.

Hope this helps,
