Why does emerging udev-119 not result in removing hotplug? Yesterday we emerged udev-119 and all of a sudden - after a reboot - we had a lot of devices missing in /dev/ - ie the tty devices where all missing, ssh was not starting, as a result of that the system was very slow etc. We searched for hours and also considered entering Unix Domain Sockets as module but that was all in vain and not the proper solution! The very simple solution was "emerge -C hotplug". Obviously hotplug is not needed anymore with udev-119 but because it was still there it started an old version of udev and the new version of udev could not properly function! After removing hotplug all was fine!
Your feedback is very welcome!
@Carlo: Huh? The user is expecting sys-fs/udev to UNINSTALL sys-apps/hotplug. Which just doesn't happen. Additionally, this bug is identical to bug #145809

Yes, this is what I am expecting, as mentioned in bug 145809 -
What do you mean by "which just doesn't happen". What are your arguments? It is not possible? Does it not make any sense to you?
