 File writes via output redirection fail in the same way as extraction with
 'tar'.  File copy with 'cp' works.
 Editing a sufficiently large file with 'vi' and writing will produce
 error messages about an unknown file format and claims that the file is
 truncated, but later inspection indicates no obvious damage.  (I was
 editing my "~/.ssh/known_hosts" file at the time.  Subsequent use of the
 file by the ssh client succeeded--writing this very message over that
 In the "changing too many things at once" department, these most recent
