And this is i386 I guess, because the number of inodes is suspect:

the inospace and hope of the bast.

Or be really brutal and use fsdb and clri that inode - accepting the
fact that you will lose data.

I did a bit of all of this.

I switched ot 6.1.2 NetBSD/amd64 and used clri to remove the DUP and BAD inodes. After that, fsck died with out of swap (there was none, as I was using the USB boot image). So I added swap and fsck eventually died with:

bad inode number 389260032 to nextinode

This is a 7.2TB RAIDframe array. Have used this size of array to >100% full on netbsd-5 without problems in the past.
