You told that you were trying 2.0, check the changelog carefully,
especially this entry:

sys/ufs/ufs/ufs_bmap.c                          patch

	Fix a silent truncation problem that could cause corruption with large
	FFSv1 file systems.
	[mycroft, ticket #1035]

I don't know what this means exactly, but I would be careful.
