didn't know you could set these values after boot ?  Didn't notice
that in the man pages anyway.  

I thought /etc/system is only read at bootup, so how would you do
anything with /etc/system "on the fly" ?

Also, in this case, something permanent is desired, so something in
/etc/system or the apprpopriate conf file in /kernel/drv is desired
(if ndd will set these values, then that would be good to test out
if disabling it will solve the problem though (w/o having to reboot)).
