The programs involved were these shipped with NetBSD 5.0.1 release

got a dirty journaled Second Extended FS, then executed fsck_ext2fs(8)
on it (without any options IIRC) and it dumped core. Then I executed
vi(1) on another journaled SE FS and *it* dumped core :-) Then
still, I executed fdisk(8) on an MBR-labeled disk, modified the
partition table, and on writing, the thing dumped core too.
