    No, I can't be sure. (Nevertheless I'm inclined to believe
    this is rather a FIBMAP related kernel bug that has been
    introduced after the current version of the convertfs toolset
    was released in March 2002.)

    Unfortunately at the moment I don't have a scratch partition
    on any of my disks so I can't re-test on a live system.
