There is also a 90 sec bootup delay if you have changed your swap partition UUID (which happens if you reformat swap because you installed another distro and chose to format/create swap all over again) and your fstab file is set up to detect swap via UUID.

Annoying, and you have to fiddle with fstab file to either not mount/use swap, or change the fstab entry of swap to detect via label or /dev/ number.

I had high hopes for Debian kFreeBSD, but it hardly got past the experimental, non-primetime stage before it died. :(
