Thanks. I forgot to run it again after the updates. I did
so, it appears to have created successfully and I am now 
back to the state I was in before the updates:

><fs> sparse /KdevArchive1/vmpool1/test.img 11G
><fs> run
**** completion bar goes to 50% and stays there forever ****

Test image has been created:
	-rw-r--r--  1 root root  11G Apr 12 13:31 test.img

There is nothing showing in /var/tmp.

I see that a batch of Precise updates have come in
since I did an update a few hours ago, so I'm
going to install them and try again. Just to be
sure although I doubt they would have anything to
do with this.
