 Thanks.  Now your earlier statement makes sense. :-)  I'll adjust (or 
 rewrite, since I no longer remember how it is really supposed to work) 
 the script to use /dev/fssX rather than the vnode devices and make a new 
 PR if that exhibits problems.
 Should we keep this PR to track that it crashes with the vndX device 
 (and I can try and hack together something which more clearly exhibits 
 the issue), or should we close this one and I'll make a new one to track 
 the "vnd shouldn't work" issue?
