    No actually I haven't, (by choice) the FS is now read-only too as it's
    "only" /boot.

    Actually I didn't believe it at first, so I recovered the files from
    backup before I risked a reboot; but when they compared the same as the
    backup I tried it anyway. I've also checked all the other filesystems
    and done a fresh (verified!) L0 backup. :)

    Anyway I might have balanced out a bit on the luck front; I had one of
    those 'Oh shit' moments with a 'doze system a couple of days ago.
    I thought I was wiping the start of a virtual (vmware) disk ...
