Wrong hardlink count is a unionfs bug. There's also a 
/lib/modules/ -> 
/dev/dhm/.cdrom/lib/modules/ symlink in place to work 
around another unionfs bug. An alternative solution for a fully-writable 
CD, not based on unionfs, is under development, the showstopper now is 
that the proposed plan (ext2 fs on cowloop on cloop) breaks the 
possibility to customize the CD contents.

This is a stupid typo fixed in r351. Not sure if it went into the 
official 6.1-2 ISO (if not, a 6.1-3 ISO should be made).

SCSI CD-ROMs should work with the utf8 ISO, but please recheck it in 
VMware anyway.
