It's just a hunch, nothing to back it up (I haven't looked at the code).

You could test it out by removing the link temporarily, moving your 
hostfs to "hostfs2" and then softlinking your homedir to hostfs, then 
restart. Naturally your whole boot structure would not be in the right 
place, but you could see if the original problem exists.
