This happened right at the very beginning of the newfs, on a partition that,
while it did run to the end of the disk, didn't quite start at the beginning
of the disk. The only possibility for overrun would be on the "far end."
Does newfs do anything down there before proceeding from the beginning?
It's possible I did something funky with the partition size...
