I wonder if the mkinitrd update fixes the problem I had:

Isn't it strange that only Firefox is mentioned in the Changelog?

Hmmm.

patches/packages/mkinitrd-1.1.3-i486-1.tgz: Fixed a minor bug in mkinitrd
where devices such as /dev/cciss/c0d0p2 (DL360 RAID) were not properly copied
to the initramfs. "Normal" (two level) boot devices such as /dev/sda1 were
not affected by this bug, so most people won't run into it (which is probably
why it wasn't spotted in development here).
Thanks to Eric Hameleers for the patch.
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-2.0.0.5-i686-1.tgz:
Upgraded to firefox-2.0.0.5.
This upgrade fixes a couple of minor security bugs. Nobody here is launching
Firefox from Internet Explorer, right? :-)
For more information, see:
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/secu...s.html#firefox
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/xf86-video-intel-2.1.0-i486-1.tgz: Added additional chipsets.
patches/packages/xf86-video-nv-2.1.2-i486-1.tgz: Added additional chipsets.

Yep. Silly me. Always forget to update my bookmark at every new version.
