Oops- I guess I was forgetting that this is SS10, not SS1 or SS2. Yah, I guess
that the furthest in the internal chain has to have active termination now.

SS1/SS2 had legal stub limits (and more noise).

Sorry I said anything now.....

My two SS10s have internal disks, but none of them are terminated either.
