I've switched to udev some time ago without problems. But now, with
kernel 2.6.11-r9:

I can boot, but after a while there are 10 udevsend processes
hanging around. This isn't fatal at all, but if I start "emerge -uD
world", the number increases up to 400. Puting a CDROM in makes the
number explode: within seconds there are over 4000 udevsend
processes running. It might take more than 20 minutes until
keypresses are shown in the terminal. Systemload is up to 100 and more.

In short: the system is unusable.

Any idea what could be the cause for those udevsend processes and a
