Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Right, I didn't consider this.

Hmm, does this work for you? Or did you mean something like this:

while [ ! -e /dev/nb0 ] && [ $timeout -gt 0 ] ; do
        sleep 1 ; timeout=$(( $timeout-1 ))

While we are at this topic, on our debian system udev doesn't create /dev/nbX 
but /dev/drbdX, is this an udev mis-configuration or intended to happen? 
Actually, I prever /dev/drbdX.
