Thanks for the info, but I'm not using I3 or IMC2, but if I do install it, I'll keep that in mind, thanks. The spam that I see inside my client is just the log messages associated with the rest of the boot process, mostly in load_world and such. I've modified my boot sequence to log into the boot file for dmesg, and thats the spam.
So far, I can't see any problems with it. The main reason for this is to preserve ch->master of mobs.
Thanks muchly for all the help, though.
