Re: Attempting To Recover, fsck infinite looping on me

I'm sorry, but I cannot reproduce such an error in the mannor in which you 
describe; hence, I am unable to create a bug report for it.  Screen output 
from my attempt to reproduce it is below.

I will continue to try several other scenarios before giving up completely, 
but I thought you should know someone is looking into this problem (even 
though I can't yet find it).

If you have more details, like screen output from during the error, feel 
free to contact myself or anyone else on the e2fsprogs team.
