Seems that's a lot of my job...learning things so I can repeat them to
others. :-))

Do those "clusters" get written out even when the msdosfs slice is mounted
read-only?  I was getting corruption even in that case.  If it'd be
useful, I could repeat my testing.

My setup has changed from 2.0.5-RELEASE to 2.1.0-RELEASE recently.  Boy
was that wasy easy! Just upgraded from 2.0.5 to 2.1.0 lickety split.  Only
problem I've seen so far is that my modem keeps getting into a weird state
with an unusual set of lights left on and getty keeping the port grabbed.
Haven't gotten around to tracking THAT problem down (could've been some
MS-stuff software that I installed that possibly managed to trash some
modem settings in its online registration process? I don't know yet).
Hmmm...maybe I'll have to go peruse the handbook to find dialin/out modem
setup hints that I missed.  So much playing...so little time... ramble...

At any rate, I'd be willing to test out any candidate fixes (provided I
have enough time to get a good system backup done :-)).
