Sorry, but I don't see that as the solution. You've just side-stepped
the issue by removing the Toolbox module. It doesn't address the fact
that of something is loading an earlier version. Which will either be
a copy of UnplugTbox somewhere in Boot or an application run at Boot.

An applications seems unlikely as it should now complain that it can't
find the Toolbox module so my money is on UnplugTbox and I'd suggest
using Locate to search Boot for it. If it's there then it will also
replace other ROM toolbox modules which may create similar problems
somewhere in the future.

The other unanswered question is how Transient can be running with
Toolbox 1.52 loaded when it requests the 1.53 version. As said, I can
only see that happening if the check isn't executed and if that's the
case then I'd like to know as that indicates there's a bug in Transient.
