What does the stop target say in /etc/rc.d/init.d/hotplug?  I don't
know what the version is being used in 6.1.1.  I have Version 00.02 of
this script and it has:

        # Remove and Recreate /var/log/hotplug/events
        > /var/log/hotplug/events


However, on a different system with Version 00.00, the stop target is this:

                # Remove hotplug as the default manager of hotplug events
                echo /bin/true > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug

The `> /var/log/hotplug/events' command won't fail as long as that
directory exists.  I don't know what happens in the second command. 
What do you have?
