No requests were being ignored - it just took longer than usual to get
them started because they had to do additional work such as making the
install_cluster script work with zones and other new Solaris 10 changes.

(It often takes a couple of months after any new Solaris release to have
 enough recommended patches to make a recommended cluster worthwhile.)
