Fresh Install Shows Udev Failure

I've just installed 'Testing' on a VMware server and after I completed the install with no problems, the system booted into the kernel and I noticed the following start up process error:

startpar: service(s) returned failure: udev...failure!!!
I have not seen this before and am not sure if it's related to the fact that this is a virtual machine and not a physical server or something else.

Here is a Screenshot.

It seems that all problems are related to this post
It suggests removing directory and after reboot it's rebuilt.
