Confirmed. Udev was upgraded last december from 0.8x to 1.0.3.
This was the first time the machine have rebooted since December.
And I also found similar "udevd breakpoint" messages on /var/log/messages some 
minutes after that upgrade.

Well, the problem now is that the CD I had does not detect the network card, 
even modprobing the tulip module manually. So no card, no emerge... 
It is an old CD (2004.2) so now I am downloading a newer image (2006.1).
I hope it works with it.

The partitions are OK.

Thanks. I just found in Google that a Debian user had a similar problem and 
had to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.17. I will try that once I get the 
image....and the network card working :-)
