Exactly. Deep buried in my fingertip's memories is that one should
fsck / in single user, twice, and reboot immediately without a 'sync'.

a GPT slice and that I have 'log' as a mount option; it was suggested
'posix1eacls' should be used on its own.

I'll mail them off-list, to avoid large-ish uuencoded bits polluting
