   I've seen this quite a bit on the Xen DOMU that I use for building
NetBSD. So often that I ended up umount/newfs/mount/checkout my src LV
instead of just updating. Every once in a while I try an update;
sometimes it is fine, but other times not. I also just saw it in a
pkgsrc tree I updated on another box recently. After an rm -rf on the
broken tree a subsequent update succeeded, but I expect it could happen
again. In case it matters, I'm using an rsync repo clone and accessing
it over ssh.
