Since I'm in the middle of a release build, I haven't been able to
sup for two days.  Nonetheless, the following has just occured at
end of a LONG release build (slow machine):

dd if=/dev/zero of=ramdisk.fs count=4096
4096+0 records in
4096+0 records out
2097152 bytes transferred in 4 secs (524288 bytes/sec)
vnconfig -v -c /dev/vnd0c ramdisk.fs
/dev/vnd0c: 2097152 bytes on ramdisk.fs
newfs -B le -m 0 -o space -i 5120 /dev/rvnd0a
/dev/rvnd0a:    4096 sectors in 2 cylinders of 64 tracks, 32 sectors
        2.0MB in 1 cyl groups (16 c/g, 16.00MB/g, 448 i/g)
super-block backups (for fsck -b #) at:
newfs: ioctl (WDINFO): No such process
newfs: /dev/rvnd0a: can't rewrite disk label
*** Error code 1

If someone knows about this, please let me know.  Otherwise, I can
investigate with some direction given if anyone has any ideas for me.

If I don't hear anything in a couple of days, I'll go ahead and sup
and start the whole mess over again and see what happens :)
