I started up my (version 3.3 ) freeBSD , and the first thing that I did
was mount a MSDOS diskette and did a find on it (with -name "*hd*" ).
I got three lines of output stating something like 'date error; month (14)
out of range', then a long pause (during which I typed several ctl-C's ),
and the system crashed. I booted immediately, and the system informed me
(after the boot) that the disk is loused up and I should run fsck , which I
did. I ran it several times and it didn't fix the problem until I ran
fsck -p . I tried the find again, with the same results, but this time I
withdrew the floppy during the pause trying for another type of termination
to the find (rather than a system crash, I was hoping for a message that
the device was inaccessible and that I could respond in such a way that the
command would abort). Unfortunately, the system crashed again. This time,
no matter what I did with fsck I couldn't get the file systems cleaned up.
