Yes, grown errors after manufacture are a very bad thing according to
Google's observations over their vast disk array.  In fact, they
mentioned that it was the only SMART error that predicted the onset of
disk failure.

Hey, if you want to feel better, I just got a new Seagate 7200.12 that
grew its first sector error at ~200 power on hours.  We are talking less
than 10 days ontime and I think some of that on time was at Seagate
getting burned in.  Good work guys.
