What version of what file fixed the bug? I'm having problems with
freezes when writing large files to a USB flash disk -- the process
ends up in an unkillable disk wait. OTOH, I managed to back up an
entire disk to a USB 2.0 hard drive; it was slower than I'd have liked,
but it worked. Of course, the flash disk is FAT32, and I formatted
the hard drive with FFS -- could that be part of the difference?
