Thanks. Jorge Vicetto noted that having CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2 set
in the kernel config is a major no-no with recent versions of udev, and
will screw up device creation. This kernel config setting was indeed
set, which may well have accounted for this particular incarnation of
the problem. Roman Zilka noted that the 2.6.29 kernel I was using when
this happens has known issues and isn't even in the Gentoo portage tree
anymore. So thanks to Roman and Jorge I have a 2.6.36 kernel built
(without the problem setting) which I'll try when I get a moment. Being
a day late and a dollar short at the moment I'm a bit short on round
