	Feb. 15th sup. newfs -b 4096 -f 512 -i 2048 -m 5 /dev/rsd0g

	Copy boatloads of stuff to filesystem, gcc-2.6.3 for example. B^).

	Try, just TRY, to read a file with more or cp or anything and
	our fav. -current becomes hung like ein rhino-saucerous... B^(.
	It's a hard hang to DDB is of no use.

	Any ideas why a 4k filesystem might lock things up so tight?

	Seagate 1G in sync mode but I doubt that matters.

	Anyone seen or heard of this before. I seem to remember a REALLY
	old 7xx series kernel having the same problems but a 1.0 kernel
	seemed to have handled it OK.
