I read that, but I didn't connect it to my bug, because I didn't think
that anything to do with bash is relevant at that time during the boot
process. But obviously I was wrong (and by the way: that problem also
occurs with 5.1, so I don't think that it is a bash 3.2 problem)

So the bottom line is 
 - it is possible to shave 2 min off the boot process
 - a good chance to make the machine unbootable (and then play around
   until it works)
Well, I'm a lazy coward ;) but thanks
