Subject: I've experienced this bug.

IJYTS that I've expereinced this bug and that it corrupted my root
file system. However, it only happened under some very unique

I reinstalled from sarge DVD's, then upgraded to etch pacakges. I then
restored my original /etc (which I backed up to a separate partition)
and rebooted, which recorrupted my root FS. (This was mid December,
right around the 15th). However, if I just went forward with the new

In 1997 a group of programmers started writing a desktop environment
to fix a travesty they didn't create.  Their program promptly found
its way onto un*x systems everywhere. Today, still opposed by a
software monopolist, they survive as soldiers of fortune.  If you share
their vision, if you know you can help, and if you can connect to
internet, maybe you can join... the K-Team.
