.viminfo is a file created by vim containing various bits of session 
information. I don't know why it gets corrupted, but I guess it's the way it's 
created. I've seen other dot files get corrupted in the past too though.

/usr is mounted as:

/dev/ada0s1f on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates)

Its entry in /etc/fstab is:
/dev/ada0s1f            /usr            ufs     rw              2       2

It's a totally standard installation from a HEAD snapshot which is now running 

I've now seen the problem on a xen VPS, a desktop and a laptop.
