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.
