     Oops.  It's 7.2-STABLE.

     Actually, I did.  However, your note jogged a memory, so I went back to
the handbook and discovered that something I was doing was non-standard and
would have had the same effect.  It's how I've always done it, so it's rather
remarkable that it hasn't burned me before this.  So I tried doing it the
right way, and that quickly caused the file system to overflow. :-(  I moved
the file system to a larger partition, tried it again, and it worked just fine.
     Thanks very much for your note, which provided the clue that led me to
my error.
