(1) mlelstv mentioned in chat the other day that all file pages were
active (rather than inactive) and this seems broken;
(2) while chasing something else related today a number of people
found that all their vnodes were active (rather than inactive),
probably for the same reason, and this also seems broken.
also this problem probably should be filed as a release stopper :-(
