There wasn't anything in the kernel logs or dmesg output; that was the
first place I looked.   But in any case, the filesystem is on a Promise
SX6000 hardware RAID5 controller; and that thing would complain loudly
(literally) if something was wrong.  


The compressed file is 71 megs -- just to re-iterate, the filesystem is
some 450 or so gigs, and this image is raw..

And e2fsck 1.28-WIP-0817 freezes at the 70.3% mark, in pass2, of course.
