    It is a bug, it shouldn't have removed the softlink for the PFS.  However, the
    only way to destroy a pfs is with pfs-destroy and since you didn't do that the
    PFS is still intact.

    All you have to do is re-create the softlink.

    The PFS softlink points to "@@-1:nnnnn" Where 'n' is the pfs number.  For example,
    PFS #5 would be: "@@-1:00005"

    The format must be precise.  If you recreate the softlink for the missing pfs in
    your /pfs directory you should be able to CD into it and get it back.

    If you don't know the PFS number look at the PFS numbers for the existing PFS's and
    guess at the ones that might be missing.
