I ran fsck manually on that volume and it found a bunch of orphaned
files and dirs, all of them from the test runs. I suspect those could be
the result of recent power outages due to thunderstorms (three times in
two days this week alone, several more times in the last month -- yuck).
We'll see what happens; first complete run already succeeded, so it
looks good. I did download the 5.2.1 install CD and will probably
upgrade in due time, if the problems persist. I'll definitely not buy a
UPS for that cruddy box. :-)

Note that none of this affected by firewall box (Debian with Reiserfs),
or the Linux test box (Debian with XFS on S/W RAID 0), or my working box
(WinXP with NTFS on H/W RAID 5, hehe, so it's really no contest). :-)

(No, I don't have all of those under my desk, the Linux test box is
somewhere else)
