Nope, mounting /usr/obj as just ffs lead to a hang when deleting lots of
files, and lots of

After deleting and rebuilding each eventually

building standard g2c library

Then a hang vinval D+   p1    0:00.05 rm -f libg2c_p.a

So, it seems that the files are corrupted under high activity. The one
significant change in that area since it last worked (1.4U) is that I have a
    Vendor Name: Adaptec (0x9004)
    Device Name: AHA-2940A Ultra (0x6178)
and believe that formerly tagged queuing wasn't enabled by default but now is?

Any suggestions on where to look?
