[ My system is up and running again, and the screwage was actually not
very bad - it was just shown very clearly by a fsck that did a core
dump. Core-dumping fsck's tend to make me nervous ;]

Anyway, the jury is still out on 2.1.44, and I'd still like people to
test it out - but be aware that there is certainly some feature out
there that people of little faith would call a bug. So test at your own
risk (but I'd be very happy indeed if people test it out and mayhaps
help me find the problem).
