On version 2.2-STABLE, everytime we reboot the machine /etc/rc.conf
would get messed up.

What happens is like this:

before reboot:

swapfile="NO"	# set to name of swapfile

after reboot:

swapfile="NO"	# set to name of swapfile		# set to name of swapfile

and each reboot add to this file.

This seems to only happen on the two machines that were installed from
the 2.2.2-RELEASE CD-ROM (and upgraded to 2.2-STABLE).  Other machines
that were upgraded through the net seem to work OK.

Any ideas?  Also, what creates the /etc/rc.conf.previous file?  It is
probably related.
