 Sent to the wrong gnats address. (gnats-bugs for PR comments,
 netbsd-bugs to reach just the mailing list. gnats-admin is often more
 or less a black hole.)

 I do not have 5.0.1 on my server any more.
 I had it crash on me during cvs update -dP in /usr/pkgsrc as root.
 I am now experimenting with other os.
 This adding usb disk problem stemmed from teh guide writeup not workin for me.
 I do not have the error message.
 I used the add external disk that is outside the guide a bit lower of the page 
that lists the guide and pkgsrc guide.
 It worked.
 I mentioned that someone should perhaps put that external writeup in the guide.
