Well, I decided to plug in my digital camera to USB, now that the umass
patch is in the kernel.  All was fine, I was able to copy and delete the
images I wanted.

Then I forgot to umount sd0e and simply unplugged the USB cable.  Boom.
NetBSD paniced (I think, I still can't see the console behind X).

Can't try and see if this is repeatable, fsck takes some 15 minutes and
I'm supposed to get some work done.  I'll try repeating my mistake later.
