Hmm, this is now my first day testing out .22-pre6 and .22-pre6aa1 with the
new I/O stall fixes. At a first look & feel it's very good, but I've noticed
a side effect (if it can be called so):

VMware4 Workstation

2.4.22-pre[6|6aa1]: ~ 1 minute 02 seconds from: Start this virtual machine ...
2.4.22-pre2 : ~ 30 seconds from: Start this virtual machine ...

... to start up Windows 2000 Professional completely.

Well, personally I don't care about the slowdown of vmware startup with a VM
but there may be many other slowdows?!

ciao, Marc
