Yes!  Or after untarring a large set of files, etc.

fsck loves to find DUPs for me when I do this.

I've mailed a report of this here, but I don't have enough info to nail it
down.  All are runngin fairly current kernels, and are either SCSI or IDE,
none are both.  They vary from 386sx to 486dx, no cyrix chips.

It seems to be somewhat usage-related -- the more full the disk gets, the
better the chance for a DUP, but this may just be because there are
more inodes in use, too.  *shrug*
