We've had a few instances of this over the past month. We are running
NetBSD-(relatively)current on the sup server. Where do these huge files(!?)
come from?
The SCSI disk that this archive is on is old, (a full height 5" drive!) and
may be the culprit. 
I'd like to get this problem fixed, I'd also like one of OUR sup's to
succeed. (Where are those privilegded ports when you need them?)
Anyone have any suggestions?
