Well, I have.  I see about 2 a year on my NetBSD/pc532.  It typically
happens when I'm doing a build and have a power failure.  It happened
a couple of weeks ago on 1.5ALPHA.  It looks like /tmp gets messed up.
I can do a "fsck -y /dev/xxx" and have it back.  Most of the power
fails come back just fine.  Also, I have not lost anything critical in
power fail manual fsck situations.
