Ok.  I don't understand why 'fsck_ffs -b 32 -c 4' didn't set the
FS_FLAGS_UPDATED bit in fs_old_flags, which should cause the kernel
to quiet the error.

Can you please send me the output of a -current 'dumpfs -as' and
a transcript of running 'fsck_ffs -d -b 32 -c 4'
(The -d option just provides a little extra debugging information)

You can send it to me directly, there's no need to spam the full list
with diagnostics.  I will send an update to the list about what I find.
Also, the dumpfs output should gzip well if it's long.
