Back at AIX 3.0(?) I did some experiementing, and *did* manage to
corrupt their filesystem.  In that case the fsck that was shipped was
unable to repair the damage.

I was experimenting with 'crashme', so was disappointed but not
particularly surprised when I had to reinstall the machine.

It was all a long time ago though ...
