Bug Description

Running Lubuntu 12.04 RC in my IBM Thinkpad T41 with a non-pae processor and 1 GB ram,

sudo blkid

hangs in persistent live mode (may finish after 10 minutes) while it works properly in volatile persistent mode. I have repeated it with several reboots.

in my hp xw8400 with xeon 64 bit processors, I have no such problem.

Extra information: there are no such problems with for example sudo fdisk -lu with any of my computers and persistent mode.
