Running 9047-beta16 on an RT-N16 I've noticed that sometimes there's an extra delay when booting. My test router has a serial console cable so I was able to see where the pause is and it seems to be while loading the "et" module. Sometimes the delay is only 3 seconds, sometimes 43 seconds. It's only a minor annoyance but I thought I'd report it in case someone else runs into it. If you didn't have a serial cable you might think you bricked your router.
