While I'm not seeing exactly that problem, I do see problems that
result in duplicate blocks after a crash. I think it's timing- and
disk-layout dependent, but I do think there's a serious file system
problem in -current. I'm seriously contemplating wiping my disk and
installing a system from a couple of months ago.
