1) I think the bugs causing this behavior have been fixed. I've not run into
this for weeks now (but I may just have been lucky).
2) I've never got LFS corrupted to the point it would panic the system when
mounted read-only. This means that if you run in a situation where you
need to newfs_lfs it again you should be able to boot single user, mount
the fs read-only and backup it (I've always been able to). Not acceptable
for a production system, but it is for my own use :)
