fsck seg fault failure on vmware -i386?

I've had a running vmware (winXP/Vmware 7)system for several years
where I test and play prior to updating my home server...
kernel & userland @ --current (5.99.23)

No deep attachment to the VM and can of course rebuild, but...thought
someone might be interested in the failure?

Also I might learn something about fixing my system in the future?

The host OS hit a hard reset in the middle of a distribution
update. I ran scandisk on the host drives during reboot to make sure they
were "clean".

The build output was going to /usr/obj which is mapped onto /dev/rwd0e.

On reboot the machine drops from multi-user boot to single with
an error during the file system checks:
          ffs: /dev/rwd0e (/usr)
  ERROR: ABORTING BOOT (sending SIGTERM to parent)!

When I try to run fsck on /dev/rwd0e in single user
I receive the following:

  # mount
  /dev/wd0a on / type ffs (local)
  # fsck /usr
  ** /dev/rwd0e
  ** Last Mounted on /usr
  ** Phase 1 - Check Blocks and Sizes
  INCORRECT BLOCK COUNT I=224938 (4 should be 0)
  CORRECT? [yn] y

  ** Phase 2 - Check Pathnames
  ** Phase 3 - Check Connectivity
  ** Phase 4 - Check Reference Count
  UNREF FILE I=224938 OWNER=0 MODE=100644
  fsck: /dev/rwd0e: Segmentation fault

Is there any other NetBSD-Fu I can use to fix this simply? 8-)
