I was asked offlist:

Yes, I see wcc errors like these:

Mar 29 20:51:20 yt /netbsd: [ 208996.0919434] re-enabling wcc
Mar 29 20:51:20 yt /netbsd: [ 209116.2535171] inaccurate wcc data (ctime) detected, disabling wcc (ctime 1617042615.889440844 1617042615.889440844, mtime 1617042615.889440844 1617042615.889440844)

Perhaps that's the root issue?
