   Ugh. Obviously it should do that. I think the wrong bucket panic only
happens when an internal inconsistency is detected. Are you running with a
customized kernel (one you built yourself)? Did you specify the address
properly in hex (0xe0000), or could it be that you just typed "e0000"? You
might also look at the result after you changed it (using the ls command) and
make sure that it properly set.
