I did ls the directory, and it worked. The filesystems all went
through numberous full fsck's on both the Jan and Jun -CURRENT's
without a hint of trouble.

That, I don't know, but there were 3 of them on /usr (/usr/src,
/usr/obj, and /usr/ports all had the trouble), so I'm a little doubful
that three of those inodes/blocks that happened to be mountpoints went
wonky. /usr/local kept working just fine, though.
It's pretty wacky. At least it's wacky and in the past now; having to
unmount and remount all the time instead of just mount -u'ing was
driving me battier. 8-}
