Subject:   "late filesystems" and switching net configs
Message-ID:  <20070704052737.GB40018@demeter.hydra>

I have a couple of niggling little, er, "quirks" that I'd like to get
sorted out on my FreeBSD Thinkpad.

  1. During boot, if I'm booting up anywhere but at home (where my static
  IP address configuration applies), the startup messages pause for a few
  long seconds at a message that says "Mounting late filesystems".  When
  plugged into the network at home, though, using my static IP
  configuration, it swoops past that pretty quickly.  Can someone tell me
  what that's about?

  2. For some reason, if I use DHCP at all then want to switch back to my
  static IP setup, I have to restart the computer to get it to access the
  Internet.  I haven't been able to figure out why.  If I recall
  correctly, I can switch to static IP on bge0 and access other systems
  on the network, but I can't do anything related to the Internet.  Yes,
  by the way, I am checking to make sure the contents of resolv.conf are

Any ideas about how to figure out what's going on in either case would be
