:> I don't know, if it is interesting for you anymore, but I've had a "write 
:> error" yesterday while doing an "cvs up -dP" in /usr/pkgsrc, though there was 
:> enough place on /usr.
:Have you done an 'fsck -f' on your /usr partition?  I've been doing
:it on every reboot and I haven't seen any more errors.  Also, are you
:running the latest -CURRENT?

    I will note that all the filesystem fixes are in HEAD as of Preview,
    but a lot of them didn't make it to 1.4 due to their complexity.

    I have an active bug report regarding a bitmap assertion that occured 
    once, but it is unclear whether it was left over from a previously fixed
    bug or whether it is an indication that there are still FS bugs in the

    I am particularly interested in reports of any new ufs_dirbad panics
    on HEAD.  I've been chasing that one forever and anything >= Preview
    will have yet another possible fix for it.
