I've had a problem like that running a imbtr and for some odd reason the
module for ibmtr was set up wrong causeing ifconfig and any other
netowrk app hanging until you had to kill it with screen. I just redid
the modules and it was fine. I'm not sure what the problem you are
having is but could it be that linux is thinking somehow it is already
loaded or is ia device error of some sort?
