[Netkit.users] problems starting labs

thank you for signalling the problem. Unfortunately, it is due to lstart
expecting to find the files that confirm the startup of virtual machines
inside the current directory instead of the lab directory.
You can easily check that running 'touch vm.ready' (where vm is the name
of the first vm) from the same directory where you used lstart -d should
let the next virtual machine start.

This will of course be fixed in the future. In the meantime, you can try
to apply the attached patch to your Netkit installation (or simply avoid
using -d).
