How about checking this fix in to NetBSD-current?
This way, current-users would clearly see if they also get these trashes.
We would at least find out if it's machine-independent then.
I guess people also prefer if they can be sure this problem is fixed by your
hack on the fly if it occurs instead of getting their inodes trashed.

So long, Markus
